A Hotchkiss H-35 tank has been found in France !!
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.

According to the article, a Hotchkiss H-35 tank without turret re-appeared on the coast, dredged thanks to the tide. It was discovered at Camiers, a town located between Boulogne-sur-Mer and Le Touquet (Pas-de-Calais, Northern France, near Belgium).
This tank could be a remain of the Dunkerque gap fightings, which happened in May-June 1940. The fact that it doesn't have any turret could be explained because the turret has been used on a fixed bunker, as a defensive position, but this is unconfirmed.
The town of Camiers is willing to recover the tank and maybe to place it as a monument, it is the 9th Hotchkiss H-39 tank still lsurviving today.
