AFV's Utrecht province
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.

Had to go to Utrecht, and combined this with a visit to the cavalry museum in Amerfoort, and the mechanical workshop in Leusden.

First the Cavalry museum in Amersfoort;

Hello Doug,

I think it's this one and it's been moved indoors from where I caught it a few years ago...used to be near the Shermans and has the same number on the side.

It is one and the same, I think it moved inside somewhere in the first half of last year

When I visited the place in september 2009 it was already stored inside

Concerning the presentable state, that is only from the outside
The inside is an little less presentable Sad

Question concerning the Centurion turret, picture 17 in the row above

Does soem one know what version it belonged to Confused

It appears to be an 20pdr gun, so an Centurion Mk 3 perhaps

Looks like they parked it where the Fennec (sp?) used to be.

IIRC it can be a mk.3 or a mk.5 of which in the last the coax was changed to the US made M1919A4 .30 Browning mitrailleur and with a American radioset.

Lesley
