"The Trun scrapyard", 26 september 2010
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.

Hello,

"Manu military", recently told me that the Trun scrapyard is now totally empty. The mayor decided to evict the current owner of the field, and all the scrap went off. Most of it went to a scrap dealer, but :

-some parts of French pre-1945 vehicles went to French private collectors
-the Stuart (or M8 HMC??) remains went to Poland, but I don't know who got them (a museum or private owner??)

look at this thread (in French) :

I can tell now that the tank with Polish markings was an early M3A1 Stuart. Here is a photo showing the rear hull, the part is upside down, the floor is visible from above :



Here is one of the M3A1 rear idler wheels :
