Bovington Tank Museum pics... Some ID Help Needed
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.

Some more pics - the Mk II "Flying Scotsman."

I hadnt realized the Mk IIs were intended to only be used for training - they did apparently were not armored? This was one of 26 sent into the Battle of Arras anyway in 1917 since the newer models were not available. Some damage can be seen in the last pic.

Yes, I think so, three "Tigers" present - the one Tiger and two King Tigers (one Porsche turret & one Henschell).
Neil


and what about the Bovington Jagdtiger? (one of the only 3 remaining in the world, the second one being at Aberdeen and the other one at Kubinka)?

So in the Bovington museum are exposed 4 tigers !!

A Mk IV - after WWI this tank had been gifted to HMS Excellent, the Royal Navy gunnery school (ie a "stone ship" shore installation) in recognition for their help in training tank crews. In 1940, apparently some of the naval officers got her going again should the Germans show up Wink I've also read the entire Bovington tank collection was broken up at that time for use as defensive positions as well...

A Mk A Whippet known as "Caesar" - one of two in the world, the other is at the Ordnance Museum at APG. A Birtish Army Lieutenant won a VC posthumously in this tank.

Carden-Lloyd carrier



Vickers D3E1 wheel-cum-track tank



L1E3 amphibious tank



Mk II medium tank. The Ordnance Museum CD guide claims their Mk IIA "believed to be the only remaining example equipped with a 3-pounder gun (most had 2-pounders)." However, I cant find any reference to Mk IIs with 2-pounders, and this one appears to have a 3-pounder. Besides which, the APG Mk IIA isnt currently equipped with any gun... Hmm...
