Preserved Tanks in Britain
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

hi
the centurion outside lulworth camp is now gone a warrior stands there.


Thanks for that - updated:

UID 1599: Lulworth Entrance Centurion

Have you any idea where it is now?


- ossie

Thanks for that - I could see what appeared to be a tank in Google maps at the hard standing for the firing ranges, so I guess that was it - do you know roughly when it moved? I wonder if it was already at Bovington when I visited in October 2008, in which case I might have a picture of it.

Do you have any pictures of these I could use? I'm having trouble getting hold of any.

Thanks for that - you're right, I hadn't spotted that the tanks with Chieftain turrets were actually Centurions! Updated:

UID 1606: Lulworth Centurion ARK

UID 1607: Lulworth Centurion ARK

RE the photos of the Chieftains around Bovington Camp

- Neil_Baumgardner
They seem to have originated from here

merseysidertr.com/RTR/...iment.html

Neil


Good find - I contacted the webmaster (Brian Gill) and he has kindly given permission to use them, so I've added them to PTC:


UID 1597: Bovington Chieftain

I found some more photos of the targets at Lulworth online and have received permission to use them, so today I added photos to some of the existing entries and added 6 more Chieftains:

BTW I see you list two StuG III over there, are you sure?


I'm pretty sure there have been two as they look very different (e.g. around the driver's visor) - one has been in the museum a long time, and a new Finnish-style one arrived from Parola in 1990. However, the 'old' one may not be there any more - I didn't see there it in 2008. I will investigate it further when I get to that section of my Bovington write-up (for example, it may be the one now at Duxford as it certainly resembles it).


From a bit of Googling I can confirm that the other Bovington StuG is the one now at Duxford, so I have combined the two entries I had in the database:


Unique ID 125: Duxford StuG (ex Bovington)

Today I've been working on Bovington's Kl Befehlswagen - it's certainly very well travelled (it has probably the most complex map I've done so far):

Unique ID 16: Bovington Kl Pz Befehlswagen

I'm about to go on a holiday in South Wales. If anyone has suggestions for tanks to visit either on the way there from Northampton, or just generally in South Wales, I'd love to hear from you.

Ones I already know about are either on PTC:

PreservedTanks.com: Preserved Tanks in Britain

or sitting in my 'backlog' waiting to be written up:

Google Maps: Preserved Tanks in Britain

While on holiday I visited Castlemartin and the Wales Tank museum so I'll write those up at some point. I also decided to work on some locations in my backlog (i.e. ones I visited and photographed some years back) so over the next few months they will go online on PTC, in parallel with my main current work on Brazil and Netherlands.

The first is the Thetford Memorial:

I have tracked two of the Brazil Stuarts to Marcus Glenn at Little Sutton in the north of England, and have therefore done a write-up of Marcus Glenn:

Location ID 3540: Marcus Glenn, Little Sutton, Lincolnshire, England

2%20x%20Stuart,%20M4%20hybrid,%20Abbot The%20two%20Stuarts%20are%20currently%20for%20sale: Unique%20ID%201808:%20M3%20Stuart Unique%20ID%201809:%20M3A1%20Stuart

If anyone has anything to add, please let me know.

Current sitrep:

The following Stuarts from Mike Stallwood's batch have been tracked (Brazilian registration, unique ID, location):

M3 EB11159, 1796, Länzlinger Collection (see PTi Switzerland thread)
M3 unknown, 1808, Marcus Glenn (see above)
M3A1 EB11547, 1801, Tanks in Town (see Tanks in Town thread)
M3A1 EB11549, 1798, Bovington (see above)
M3A1 unknown, 1809, Marcus Glenn (see above)

In addition I have been playing detective and have been able to identify the following Stuarts from that batch, and for now have allocated them to the RR Motor Services location until I found out where they moved on to:

M3 unknown, 1814

M3%20EB11049?%20(right%20hand%20vehicle),%201812 M3%20EB11165,%201813 M3%20EB11208,%201802 M3A1%20EB11530?,%201803 M3A1%20unknown,%201800 M3A1%20EB11008,%201804 M3A1%20EB11020?,%201805 M3A1%20EB11033?,%201807 M3A1%20EB11048,%201799 M3A1%20EB11071%20(second%20from%20right),%201806


That makes 5 x M3 and 11 x M3A1 which tallies with the published reports. If anyone can shed light on where these Stuarts are now, please let me know. Or just point out if you've seen a Stuart appear recently in a collection that wasn't there 3 years ago.

At Tanks in Town 2009 there where 3 stuarts, all in the same condition. I have to search for the pictures of them.
Staman in the Netherlands also had 3 stuarts of that lot (one has EB 11567) see: www.staman.nl/N_frame....staman.nl/ (under vehicles for sale)

That would be great thanks - particularly if the pictures include the registration numbers.

Yes, I'm hoping to write up Staman next, particularly as it returns me neatly to working on Preserved Tanks in the Netherlands. This is the best account I've found so far of how Staman and Stallwood came to find and import the Stuarts:

MVCG France

The pictures appear to show 4 Stuarts, but it's not clear if one might be the Lanzlinger one.

The registrations for those 3 stuarts at T.i.T 2009 are EB 11159, EB 11547 and EB 11008, however the last one has EB 11006 painted on the rear Confused
I will send the pictures by mail

That Stuart at this years T.i.T, I have a strong feeling its one of that group. I will try to contact the owner ASAP.
