Is this the museum's Cavalier tank, that was recovered from Larkhill?



here is another view :



I do think that it is the A24 Cavalier, because the turret is in the same position it was when the Cavalier was recovered...

Can anyone identify this Sherman model?



Thanks,

Neil


The differential housing and the fact that it is an ex-British tank makes me guess it's an M4A4.

The ATDU Ram is not one of the Museums vehicles, it was a range recovery and restored by the then CO of ATDU. The reason a Ram was chosen was availability and ISTR ATDU had an exchange Canadian Officer at the time.. I helped with the restoration and have some photos somewhere I can scan in.


tankbarrel,
Thanks for the info! As P-O said, any pics would be welcome, as would any markings painted on the tank - such as War Department number, name, etc. Naturally if its from the original data plate that would be great!

Also, what happened to the Chieftain AVRE that was on display there! And can you help with what is on display where at the Camp, and help differentiate those from in-service vehicles on my list?

Thanks!

Neil

Yes, it was from Salisbury Plain, though I think it had previously been on Pirbright, it was a long time ago!


I believe that it is this one :

"Unknown date, Ram recovered by the British Army (ATDU Bovington) from the Pirbright range. Photo John Gillman"

There are 3 Leopard 1s, a proto, a Canadian C2 and a German A1A2.

The other Type 69 and the L7 gun equipped Type 59 were seen in july 2003 by a collegue of me in the storage area. He told me the other Type 69 was in the public hall.

The T-72M1 is a M as far as I can see from the picture.

Regards,
Lesley
