    Scrap yard relics...

    Bit of a long shot as this was posted in 2011 but I don't spose you remember where you spotted the sentinel tug, it was owned by my family for about 15 years and then sold to the britannia trust at kemble to tow the britannia. I would love to see if it's still there and have a last look around it
  3. Hi there im matt from the Oxfordshire area. Iv always had a keen intrest in all military and vintage vehicles but not yet been lucky enough to own one. I am hoping to find some information about a sentinel aircraft tug that was in my family for a fair few years. It was ex raf and originally had a rolls Royce petrol engine but was later fitted with a Leyland diesel engine. It was owned by my uncle for around 10 years and my other uncle for about 5 years before that. It was sold to someone from the britannia trust in roughly 2005 to be used to tow the britania at kemble.sadly the buyer called my uncle 3 months later and asked if he would like to buy it back as he had bought another.i recently found a photo of it on here in a scrap yard but the post was from 2011. I know it's a bit of a long shot but I am hoping someone will remember which scrapyard it was seen in. Thanks in advance, matt
