Ditto, great set of photos! Especially love the King Tiger interior pics, like this one:



Is the hatch now open on it or did you get special access? Seemed like you had to have taken the pic from the rear inside of the turret?

BTW, for viewers - be sure to click to page 5 for Dennis's new pics although the other albums are well worth looking at too!

Some shots from Dennis' album of items in the Bovington storage lots:

Uh... WAG - Chieftain-based bridgelayer???



Looks like a Matilda I that was used as a range target?





Chieftain right? Anything special?



Looks like they move the wierd Soviet VISMOD Vickers tank - probably so people would stop asking about it!



Churchill Mk I hull, cant tell if the turret is original... Thats a 3-inch howitzer in the hull...





Okay, this one has me stumped... Looks sorta like a Valiant, but the front hull-shape isnt right (should be pointed). Whats up with the big piece of metal obscuring the driver's left-side view?

Really big turret with a dummy gun (at least I hope)... I'm stumped...

Hi there, also posted on the missing links forum but don't know if you saw it. Is the Morris Light Recce Car in a good position to take photos of, and are any parts of the museum closed like it says on the website? Might go this week, hope I get to i've wanted to go for years.

Okay, I guess that makes sense - re: Centurion.
