Link works perfectly.

Very nice pics.

Might be worth a trip (only around 500 km distance but you drive on the wrong side of the road  ;))

I hadn't been in something like 20 years - and it's changed hugely. Very nice - it was a shed or two before I'm sure.

There's lots of stuff there...LOTS.

Awesome pix! Thanks for posting!

Who'se this feller? I'm guessing Valentine by the running gear and hull but the turret looks unfamiliar. Some variant? Looks like maybe a 2 pounder gun.

I think its a Mk IX with the long 6pdr gun, or maybe the Mk XI which had a 75mm.

Maybe it's the perspective but that barrel opening looks really small.

It is indeed a Valentine

I think its a Mk IX with the long 6pdr gun, or maybe the Mk XI which had a 75mm.
And bob called it...a Mark IX
