UK AFV Register
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.

I didn't find the Churchill..
On the "Churchill Register" website, there is a B&W photo, which I guess is quite old. Seems that the tank has gone since then..

Adrian,

do you have, or could you get some recent pictures of Carl Brown's RAMs?
Do you have a turret for your Cromwell now?

thanks

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.

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.
