Tank Museum - part 3 - WW2

Churchill Crocodile.
Crocodile fuel trailer
Pz IIL 'Luchs'

KV-1
Su-76
T-26 in Finnish markings.
Goliath remote-controlled demolition charge.
L-3 tankette with flamethrower.  That big gun is behind the L-3, not on it!
Marmon-Herrington MkVI.  An unsuccessful experiment.  Think of it as a poor copy of the Sdkfz 231 series.
Char B.
Finnish StuG III with interesting log armour.  Very eco-friendly.

Hi Tim,

I am loving this 'tank porn' as I am planning to (re)visit Bovington at the end of August so the timing is impeccable!

Loved the T26!

All the best,

DC

PS How is Forbodia coming along?

Glad you are enjoying the photos. Well worth you visiting I'd say. With the building of the new hall there are very few exhibits visible outside - just as well in view of the er, heavy precipitation which accompanied my visit. Little has occured in Forbodia of late - a combination of work, new kitchen and being away last weekend. Oh, and preparing the COW porogramme.

The log armour is a comfortingly low-tech solution.
