Thanks Rick, I believe the Canadians may have been in error when they gave them away.

Thanks for this one Darren, great photos from the TankFest and museum. The Lanciafiamme almost makes up for the lack of a 38(t)

You captured the re-enactors well, looks like a good time was had by all.

I visit Bovington once or twice a month so I will see what I can do for you. Is there some specific part of the weapon you are interested in or a general overview?

Alan; It was a great day out and would have been even better if I had not been doing a 12 nightshift on Friday, however there was enough going on to keep me very much awake up until I got in the car to come home.

Wayne for next years event why not post on here asking if anyone is interested in sharing petrol, I am sure someone in your area or passing through your area will jump at the chance.

Sorry Andrzej Bovington may look down on the practice of taken home the exhibits, and if they didn't I want one attached to a KT.

Boy, that's a fantasy trip for me!

Gotta remember the time of year it happens so if the Mrs and I ever plan a trip to the UK it'll 'just happen' to be around Tank Fest time.

Thanks for the images. Do you have any of the sliced Centurion?
