here are some things i saw at the dday museum in portsmouth
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.

Hi Doug! Hi Folks!

I think that's is late WW II British weight classification marking! Later it was adopted by NATO.

Spot Report!
