Thanks.  That was a very enjoyable day-long trip by myself.  The wife went shopping.

There is one embarrassing thing.  Brant put a Panzer 3 in with the pictures of the other British Tanks.  He dropped the pictures of the Panzer 1 and Panzer 2.

In his defense, my commentary and suggestions for picture insertions was complex.

Still, go to Bovington if you ever get the opportunity.

It's not like Brant really knows anything about tanks :P

Nice post. I've been to Bovington a couple of times (lucky I live about 2 hours away) and always wished I'd had more time there. Allow a full day if you're a tread head, and try to get down there when they have some of their outdoor action displays. Great pics of some less well knows tanks.
Regards
Keith
