Sentinel aircraft tug

Recommended Posts

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

Wow. that's an unusual looking vehicle. It's not one that I recognise, but you may find someone on here who can help. You should start a thread in one of the vehicle sections of the site (the introductions section doesn't get as much engagement)

Hi Matt, I now have this truck, it was at J Hirst scrap metals of St Mary Bourne Andover, they are now closed down. I have owned it since about 2012.
