I doubt that the sound of broken bones could be heard through the roar of the tank engine and the overall noise in the movement, especially at high speed. Pheraps after several drinks, it is possible  :wink:


Well, you have to try it first, tell me how it was and then I'll believe ya!
Have you ever heard the noise of a brocken femur, or the noise of a crushed skull? Try and ask someone that worked as a paramedic (for example) if you wouldn't believe me. :wink:. They'll tell you that when a motorcyclist roles over on the highway and breakes his legs one can hear the noise of the breaking bones on top of all that traffic noise. Clear and loud!!!

Tale.
I just remembered a gross story about a guy who was crushed under the tracks of a "buldozer", legs first. The head was the last and when it popped the noise was as powerful as a small explosion. :shock:

Come on, the noise inside the tank cannot compare any the traffic noise in the street. At top speed, the crew members could not hear each other even if they were yelling, and they were standing one by the other. This is why they were using the headphones.

About the British Valentine, but inside all tanks it was pretty the same then:

The headphones are not just for crew communication; the noise inside these metal monsters was incredibly loud as there was no sound deadening material used what so ever. The combination of engine, suspension and cannon noise could make a man without ear protection deaf in a matter of days or weeks.

This happened to my grandfather... He was a tanker within the 1st Armoured Div... He is almost deaf. He was the guy with the machine-gun. The Romanians had such headphones from the start of WWII ?

Johnny, it would be very interesting if you convince your grandfather to relate some of his stories.

Unfortunately I am very far away from him... But I will try to convince my sister to talk to him. Maybe she will have more luck than me.
