The Beverley was dismantled and assembled twice first time in 1983 and brought to the museum of army transport and secondly when the museum closed and moved to fort paull As to the berlin carriage the RLC had the chance to have it in 2003 and to be blunt they could not have cared less as some of you will not have heard what l said in the interview today l explained the problems when taking on the Beverley only three options the scrapman fort paull and Elvington air museum fort paull offered the most l would have preferred Elvington

  15. I do not know if you have thought of the BMIHT at GAYDON archives they have some of the NUFFIELD MECHANIZATIONS archives and some times its not the obvious place that may hold what you are looking for As to museums as some one who worked in one and dealt with archive enquiries I have to agree with the above comments things have changed not for the better in military museums on a visit to a collection l pointed out that a exhibit was label wrong as a fuel tanker and not a water bowser the person there basically said we are the experts on things military to which l pointed out that if he or someone cared to take time to read the back he would see written drinking water only also l was the person who gifted it to them and l then left
