Lend-Lease

Postby waayfast » Tue Feb 28, 2017 8:43 pm

Hello all,

Is there any good (as in quick) place on the ol' WWW that would have a detailed list of American goods that were sent to our Allies during WWII. Most specifically what did we send to Russia, how many and when.

I was curious if the M1A1 hand cart ended up there?

Thanks, Jim

Thanks for the reply,

That is quite a list for sure! Amazing the amount of goods sent during that time. I'm trying to put together a display I can have with my G506 Chevy at local car shows that explains the lend lease program.

As time marches on, seems like people are not familiar with details like this, especially young people.

Thanks, Jim

What is more amazing is that this stuff can still be found crated up in in warehouses across Russia.A rich Russian banker found two crated up MA jeeps in a warehouse in Murmansk.
