Surviving Panzers website
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.

I don't think so, for me that's an old photo of the Cromwell which is now a part of WWII Memorial in Latrum

IoW Military Museum, website says they have 6 Churchills on site for "restoration". Only 1 plus a turret on the .pdf.
www.isleofwightmilitar...page3.html


I think that Trevor Larkum could confirm this, IIRC he visited the Isle of Wight museum some months ago. If we are lucky enough, he could have some pictures too.

Pierre-Olivier


I have 420 photos from IOWMM in my backlog waiting to go online. From a quick skim through them looking for Churchills:

1. Hull inside, painted green, with tracks.
2. Hull outside, rusty, no tracks.
3. Hull outside, rusty, with tracks.
4. Hull in a lean to, rusty, with tracks.
5. Complete tank inside, painted sand.

I also have photos of the A30 Challenger - it's in poor condition, they're restoring it for Bovington.

Trevor,

would you mind sending me via email one photo of each tank quoted above? thanks in advance. I'm very interested to see what the A30 looks like..

Trevor,
Could I use 3 of these pictures (2 of the missing Churchills and 1 of the A30) on "Surviving Panzers"?

thanks

Of course, you're welcome.

Here you go - it's in a bit of a state:



You can see one of the Churchills to the right (and the lean-to housing another one behind) plus a Charioteer to the left.

Duxford's Landwarfare Hall is closed over winter.
duxford.iwm.org.uk/ser...ebDoc.7031


- Massimo_Foti
Heck! That's would destroy my plans for next year Sad
Maybe Latrun could be a good option even in winter... If not I could be forced to move into planes museums instead

Massimo

PS We really should move this into a dedicated thread


well, the website says :
"From Monday 1 November 2010 until Saturday 19 March 2011, Land Warfare and Hangar 3: Air and Sea will be closed to the public. Download full revised winter opening arrangements(pdf version, 12.4KB)."

so it could be opened again for winter 2011-2012. Are these buildings closed every winter?

P-O

They started this winter, cost-saving measures, I believe. Whether they carry on or not, we don't know.

A real wreck here.

Chi-Ha. Passing%20the%20last%20paragraph%20through%20Google%20Translate,%20it%20says: \"After%20that%20?,%20this%20tank%20of%20Nasu%20\"War%20Museum\"%20is%20carried,%20the%20exhibition%20grounds%20(left?),%20so%20that%20is,%20this%20place%20is%20not%20nothing%20left%20now.\" Moved%20to%20Nasu%20War%20Museum? Edit- Possibly%20this?
