I have some images from the 70s when it was stuffed with armour... churchills in big piles, AEC command vehicles, M10s etc...

I must stick them on my web site sometime.

Hi Neil,

just for fun I used google to search for the scrapyard and one of the first hits was the following

This set is from 2006
www.flickr.com/photos/...109536914/

The following is from 2008
www.derelictplaces.co....php?t=5126

The 2 US LARC's can still be found on google maps and some ship wrecks

Michel

tankbarrell,
Many thanks - very impressed by your efforts!

All,
Is there anything left at the Harry Pounds Scrapyard in Portsmouth?

I have the following listed, but like Witham, I doubt anything of substance is left?

Chieftain Mk 2 GBR std? VRN 05EB41
M4A2 Sherman BARV USA/GBR std? WD No. T151011, VRN 65ZR79

Neil,

this is my Cromwell, previously a Charioteer.

Cromwell IV T189557, served with 1 RTR in Normandy, will be restored back to that standard.


This is my Sherman as she is now. For a restoration report see hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/sho...estoration

Lesley,
I have 1EB66 there, but not 1EB65. I'll have to doublecheck against Griffin's book, once I get it unpacked...

That being said, I wonder how many - if any! - Chieftains are still at Witham...

Hopefully I'll hear back from Griffin on this and others...

Hi Adrian,

Yes, I'm fine and remember the trips on the ranges and I think I even found you some wheels just off the range. I've still got a few souvenirs in my garden amongst the bushes! Now in Holland and after a flirtation with a Dodge am mainly writing.

Tim,

tankbarrell,
If you have any pictures of your Cromwell and M4A4 you'd like to share (on here or a photo site, etc) I'd be more than happy to link to them.

Tim,

hope you are well, not seen you for a few years. You were very helpful to me regarding access to SPTA all those years ago, couldn't have done the Sherman without you!

There is a good Churchill register here although I'm not sure how up to date it is:

I do have turrets for my Cromwell and I do have an M4A4 that I have restored.

Here are Carls two Rams when still on the range, I have recently completed a lot of work on one in it's return to running.

I think it's time for a "Churchill tanks" PDF file...


Yes indeed. Wink

Massimo


this thread makes obvious the fact that Chris Shillito's "Churchill register" website is seriously out-dated.

http://freespace.virgin.net/chris.shillito/a22new/register/thelot.htm

I'll begin to review the new Churchill tanks PDF list that Rafal sent to us on next Monday.

P-O

Thanks again P-O! BTW, the "other vehicle" is a Combat Engineer Tractor. They also appear to have a Titan AVLB
www.flickr.com/photos/...2911980365

Although the apparently new letter-number-letter VRN scheme has me perplexed... Unless its bogus...

FYI, looks like the Castlemartin Gate Guards have been replaced: www.flickr.com/photos/...543801502/

I think the Chieftain came from Pembroke Dock... According to ARRSE, the Conqueror & Centurion are in a tank park awaiting restoration. www.arrse.co.uk/Forums...ml#2138209

BTW, looks like Rob Griffin is active on that board so I'm trying to contact him for his latest info.

Also, here's a few others (in addition to the ones mentioned before) I could use help with.
