Copies of the photos would be great, thanks. It's funny going through those links - many of those tanks I haven't seen on public display since my 1982 visit.

7133; YP408
7144; BRDM-1
7158; Fuchs (Fox) prototype
7159; T18 Boarhound
7160; EE9 Cascavel
7161; AT105 Saxon
7162; Stalwart
7163; Alvis Saladin, FV601
7164; HS30 APC
7165; HS30 mortar carrier
7167; Panhard AML H60
7168; Panhard AML H90
7170; Saracen FV603
7171; Panhard EBR FL10
7176; Saracen Armored Command Post FV604
7184; Warrior FV515
7186; Humber Pig FV1611
7189; Centaur half-track Land Rover
7190; BV202
7191; Ferret (probably Mk 2)
7211; Morris Mk 1 Scout Car
7218; Crossley Mk 1 Armored Car
7219; Leyland Armored Car

Hope this helps,

7134 looks like a vanilla T54 to me.

The Cambridge carrier is the only surviving one. This is an Armoured OP version (FV 402 or Armoured OP No. 4) and was recovered from the ranges at Porton Down and restored at the Museum in 1984.

Here are the wrecks stored near the new parking :
Bovington wrecks stored outside

I'm uncertain on 2 hulls which look like Centaur or Cromwell, any help please?

I can identify UID2039 and UID2030. I suspect IMGP6955 is UID1988.
