A Centurion in a Beatles video...?!
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.

The internet is a scary place. I trust one of our more senior Brits can clear this up, but I think it's from "Help". The song is "I Need You". I presume the Cent is being crewed by the 'Stones or maybe the Dave Clark 5.

Filmed, apparently, at Salisbury Plain. www.imfdb.org/wiki/Hel...65_film%29

It is from the movie "Help", The Beatles are attempting to film a music video, while being protected by the British army from a cult of Asian assassin's who need to kill Ringo because a ring he has stuck to his finger designates him as their next sacrificial victim. The cult attacks and the lads flee in one of the tanks. HTH

I like these sorts of detective hunts! From the YouTube sequence at 2:00 I would say its registration is "01 ZR 63". I don't have a record of it being preserved (Centurion tanks on PTC) but I wouldn't be surprised if it has had a second lease of life in another country with a different registration.
