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.

MILLOM

Chieftain Mk 2 GBR out? VRN 06FA49
Chieftain Mk 3 GBR out? VRN 00FC51


Neil, I'm on holiday in the Lake District next week and I'll try to track this down. Have you any more information?

Also this one, as I'll be driving past Swynnerton.

Now, on the other matter, has anybody else heard anything about French Panther's in Vietnam? Mr. Green


Doug, I believe it was still called Indochina when France did use these tanks.
The Panther tank was put out of service in 1952 in the French 503rd Tank Battalion and French 6ème Régiment de Cuirassiers, due to the lack of spare parts (as usual in the French Army, indeed).

Centurion avre mk12 is a AVRE NOT A GUN TANK
ITS A CENTURION MK 12H AVRE 105 MM . ALTHOUGH TEH DOZER BLADE IS NOT FITTED THE MINE PLOUGH ATTACHMENT AND DOZER BLADE BOLTS BRACKETS THE TWO ROWS OF BOLTS WHERE THEY ARE BOLTED ON
SORRY MY SELF AND ONE OF THE MUSEUM STAFF CREWED THIS TANK IN GERMANY SO I KNOW IT VERY WELL .
I POSTED A MESSAGE REGARDING WHAT HAPPEND TO THE OLD AFV NEWS AND NOT ABOUT VEHICLE LOCATIONS IT WAS DELETED , SORRRY BEEN COMMING HERE 10 YRS AND IT HAS OFFENDED ME. I HAVE HELP ALOT OF PEOPLE OUT OVER THE YEARS BUT THAT WAS THE LAST STRAW
BY THE TIME U WRITE YOUR SO CALLED AFV REGISTER OF UK THEY ALL BE CHANGED AGAIN
ITS NEVER THE SAME . THEY ARE MOVING STUFF ALL THE TIME.
OSSIE


Ossie raises a couple points here I would like to address

First about the deleted message - There was no intention to delete a posting to this forum. That isn't the way we operate. on the very few times we have deleted a message I believe the poster was informed as to why it was deleted (I remember one that we felt disclosed operational information that would be detrimental to troops in the field) The technical management of the site has been informed of the problem and I am sure they are looking into it to see if there was a technical problem

Second and what I think was the main point he was trying to raise - All the work on the registries is interesting and useful for many people but it is also transiant information since artefacts do move around. This actually could be a reason they are useful. It does give us a mark in time that a vehicle was at a given location (How many posts have come up along the lines of 'What happened to the tank that used to be at xyz?

Anyway while folks should feel free to work on and post information on various registries (and I think having threads with appropriate titles is a good way to do it) Lets don't neglect all the other areas of discussion this list has been famous for.

Where is a discussion of SHATTER GAP or Green Tigers when you need it?


Ditto to what Bob said, we just don't roll like that 'round here. Edits or deletions of posts (unless spam or otherwise clearly inappropriate) are done by request or subject to discussion in the Moderator's Forum and usually with the poster (either before or after). I can count on my fingers the number of times this has occurred here over a period of ~three years, due to the cordial nature of our members.

Now, on the other matter, has anybody else heard anything about French Panther's in Vietnam? Mr. Green

I have some images from the 70s when it was stuffed with armour... churchills in big piles, AEC command vehicles, M10s etc...

I must stick them on my web site sometime.

Hi Neil,

just for fun I used google to search for the scrapyard and one of the first hits was the following

This set is from 2006
www.flickr.com/photos/...109536914/

The following is from 2008
www.derelictplaces.co....php?t=5126

The 2 US LARC's can still be found on google maps and some ship wrecks

Michel

tankbarrell,
Many thanks - very impressed by your efforts!

All,
Is there anything left at the Harry Pounds Scrapyard in Portsmouth?

I have the following listed, but like Witham, I doubt anything of substance is left?

Chieftain Mk 2 GBR std? VRN 05EB41
M4A2 Sherman BARV USA/GBR std? WD No. T151011, VRN 65ZR79

Neil,

this is my Cromwell, previously a Charioteer.

Cromwell IV T189557, served with 1 RTR in Normandy, will be restored back to that standard.


This is my Sherman as she is now. For a restoration report see hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/sho...estoration

Lesley,
I have 1EB66 there, but not 1EB65. I'll have to doublecheck against Griffin's book, once I get it unpacked...

That being said, I wonder how many - if any! - Chieftains are still at Witham...

Hopefully I'll hear back from Griffin on this and others...

Neil

Hi Adrian,

Yes, I'm fine and remember the trips on the ranges and I think I even found you some wheels just off the range. I've still got a few souvenirs in my garden amongst the bushes! Now in Holland and after a flirtation with a Dodge am mainly writing.

Tim,
