  • Before the pipe is laid, a 50-mm thick bed of sand is placed in the trench, compacted and carefully levelled to give an even slope.

    2. Catchment possibilities and choice of reservoir types

  • If this method is used, a 50-mm overall slope could be obtained for the gutter.

    The Thorn Birds

  • For example, after the campaign in France, Hitler had ordered that the 37-mm. gun in the Pz III tank be replaced with a 50-mm.


  • This force was relatively small, consisting of two motorcycle companies, a few half-tracks with towed 50-mm. anti-tank guns, and eleven Mark Ill's.


  • Of the tank battalions, their firepower had been increased by the long-delayed substitution of the L 60 50-mm. gun for the old 37-mm. in the PzKw III (although the effectiveness of this was diminished by the first batch being fitted with the L 42 gun in error; see p. 37) and by the L 48 75-mm. being fitted to the PzKw IV.


  • However, for reasons which shall never be clear (but which owed much to there being no permanent body which could see a directive of this kind through to fulfilment and supervise the responsible officers at the Ordnance Office), the specification was altered to 50-mm.
