Photos of the Great War Society's display and other exhibits at Tankfest 2013 at the Tank Museum, Bovington. As a tip of the hat to the Great-uncle of a chap who joined us on our display, we portrayed the crew of D50 'Dainty Dinmont', the story being that our Mk IV, B46 'Big Brute' had been newly transferred to our unit and not re-marked yet

Great photos! Looks like a good time was had. Have fond memories of Bovington from childhood!

The Dust was appalling; mostly due to the mini-tanks in a small arena close to the display- however, the organisers were very sympathetic and I think this is a must do for next year: With luck, a very good 1940 display could be on the cards
