Tank Engine Discussion on Tractor Forum.
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.

My interest are armor and old tractors, so I was amazed when I came upon this thread on one of the tractor forums:

Sherman Tank Engines

I know that over here there was at least one plough pulling competition, where one of the entries was a converted Sherman.

Trevor, I sure would have liked to have seen that. It appears ploughing contests are big in the farming communities there. I have been invited to spend time on the Welsh coast this year and plan on attending one of the matches.

Yes, I don't know much about it myself - I was told about the tank by a farmer friend - but I have seen similar small events at local shows.
