    Given sense was seen about trying to prohibit 50 calibre rifles in private ownership - the latest legislation having been dropped, you would like to think that the deac situation may eventually get looked at. In theory, with more border controls, there maybe less eastern european "deacts" getting into the country, which seem to be in large part the source of firearms illegally held (together with ammunition). None of the present controls, be it on deacs or legally held firearms, deals with the firearms in circulation used by the criminal fraternity.

    If you don't ask you won't get..... Looking at the Tanks-a-lot photos these are definitely restoration candidates. Certainly not runners!

    Mystery Carrier

    Can anyone identify the carrier in the Pathe newsreel film "Voice of the Guns" at 2:30? Voice of the Guns Looks like its crewed by Royal Marines and they are operating a 2pdr PomPom gun. Date of the film is 1940 so pre 25pdrs and there's footage of the various light AT guns including the 2pdr

    whatever happened to.....

    I presume you mean this story........... Panther Tank Seized Looks like the German military recovered the items concerned so probably stashed in a barracks somewhere.

    Getting back on topic - great photos of the Conquerer A question for the Forum in general - Were the Conquerer and Centurion ARV's designs on the drawing board at the same time? The earth anchor on both vehicles remind me of the anchor arrangement on the Bergepanther. Did Chertsey/FVRDE "borrow" the concept?

    Pipeline Network The south west isn't served by a liquids line on the above map - the red lines are gas pipelines Not sure if there is a specific Terminal or refinery for the South West - logically it would be Fawley being the nearest

    Mystery Object

    Almost one for "Clives Mystery Objects" I presume it is mounted on the bolted clamp in the middle? Is the wiring connection via the capped off section closest to the mounting board? (with the T marking on it).
