Post by Panzerman »

The Tank Museum BOVINGTON
AFRA can be seen along with units from the LHA and both Russian Guards Regiments at TANKFEST!
We're the good looking ones in black!

Come along - listen to the rumble of the great beasts - And the tanks as well..... Fun for all the family (he lied) and a great day out in Dorset......

Can you confirm it's the 24th and 25th? It's just that I searched quickly on the web, and most places (including the museum itself) seem to suggest that its only taking place on the 25th, and I might be able to visit on the 24th...

AFAIK vehicle movement is only on the 25th. Maybe PD can confirm.

Displays etc will be on the 24th as well. At least we'll be displaying as we'll be there anyway!

I confirm and concur with my right honourable Bolshevik Comrade!
24th LH day and Muesum open as normal - We are allowed inside for public interaction and photo opportunities IN UNIFORM!!!! A FIRST FOR JERRIES!
And on 25th Vehicle Movements and battle display etc. Apparently my lot are called upon to tw*t a moving US halftrack with a panzerschreck (bazooka!)
I confess also to feeling as giddy as a kipper!

Go on give them a blast for me.

When you get back, do tell if the WW1 section has re-opened at the museum.

Did a WW1 thing there about 6 years ago, it was a great gig

The phrase 'about bl**dy time an' all' springs to mind but I mustn't be churlish. It is progress after all.

Looking forward to seeing that :twisted: .
