Preserved Tanks in Canada
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.

Trevor, Lesley,

Further to your work on the Borden collection it is worth noting that exhibits are moving around fairly regularly and that little remains at Worthington Park. The M5A1 serving as gate keepers to the RCAC memorial, Wirbelwind, Hetzer, Crab Flail, Centurion, Grizzly, Churchil and T-34/85 are about all still remaining at the Park.

Many other vehicles are scattered around base with a selection including Grozzly, T-55 and T-72 along the entrance route from Angus.

A few more are scattered in front of the new museum building adjacent to Worthington Park including Leopard 1, Centurion, M4A2E8. The Grizzly Firefly is back on base nearby. The M4A2 has been re-painted and sits in front of officers mess.

Lesley- check your email for photos. Trevor- give me a shout if you'd like more up to date shots...

Hi Trevor,

I have the following vehicles also as being at Borden. IIRC Mr.Adams has some nice pictures of the T-72.

M 4A1, l/n nov11
M 4A1, l/n nov11
M 4A2(75), located at the Waterloo Officers mess
M 4A3, hard target at the Borden Artillery Range
M 4A4(75), somewhere on the base (?)
M 24, s/n 400, l/n oct10 (N 44 17.354 W 079 53.803)
T-55, former DDR
T-72, s/n G08VT3202, former DDR, l/n nov11,(N 44 17.438 W 079 53.487) acquired in 1992 from the German goverment. ''90'' below the serial number (mod. Date?). This is just a plain T-72.

For the Leopard 1 I have as type 1C1 (source unknown) instead of C2.

- TrevorLarkum
While on holiday I wrote up and sorted the photographs for Borden. During the same trip I visited Danbury and actually wrote it up some time ago, but never put it online. I've now done that, ahead of putting Borden online.

Now I'm on to working on Borden (before returning to work on the Netherlands). The vehicles inside and outside the museum are done, and I'm currently working through the vehicles around the base:

Canadian Forces Base, Borden
