Some Comets seen at Beltring to identify

Post subject: Some Comets seen at Beltring to identify

Hello,

the Comet tanks register was updated on my website and there were several mistakes on it (due to the fact that the list was done only some weeks ago), which were corrected (but there may still be mistakes, I'm not Mr Know-it-all !!)

Anybody could give me more information about these 3 Comet tanks? I would like to know if these belong to museums or private owners :

1st one :
2nd%20one,%20nicknamed%20\"Victor\"%20(this%20is%20not%20the%20one%20from%20the%20Isle%20of%20Wight%20Military%20museum,%20which%20is%20also%20nicknamed%20Victor)%20: 3rd%20one%20:%20

Thanks in advance for your help

P-O

The first is from the East of England Tank Museum at Thetford.
Second is Ian Galliers which is often on the Isle of Wight but does not belong to that museum.
Third looks like Bovingtons.

Does the Tank Museum at Bovington own 2 Comets? Because this one doesn't look like the one which is usually exposed inside the museum..

Yes. Adamant is on display and the other is used for demonstrations. The runner is 21ZR21.

Well, gentlemen,
this post is not connected to surviving Comets at all. In fact it is connected with some pretty rare Comet...
As I say: Yetti? Big Foot? Or fifteen years old "virgo intacta"? Everybody speaks about it but nobody have seen that.

Have you ever seen Cuban Comet? Yes, A34 Comet in Cuban service...
