Antar and Centurion photo needed

Recommended Posts

Hi all. This is a plea for a photograph to go with an article I'm writing for the MVT magazine Windscreen. I need a picture of an Antar tank transporter towing a Centurion tank, preferably taken in the 1960s but a restored rig will do. I need to have written permission from the copyright owner to use it in the magazine. A high definition digital image (jpeg) emailed to me would be great. Here's hoping! Please email me if you can help. Thanks. PeterC.

You can see one in action this weekend at Heywood Tanks Yesteryear Festival if you like and take your own pics.

We have an Antar Mk2 and Mk3 with a dyson trailer with four centurions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not sure if the cent is going on the dyson, think we have too many flat tyres for that !

We'll see

I think I've found the pictures you mentioned. I might be wrong but I don't think this is a Centurion as it doesn't have side skirts>Antar-3.jpg

Looks like a Cent to me, side skirts were not always fitted.

It's definitely a Centurion, Mk2 Antar, and Sankey 50 ton trailer.

Hi again Norton 1926, I've now been told that this is in fact a Centurion with the side skirts removed. This is just the picture I need but the one on the forum is too low res to use in a magazine. I would need a hi-res jpeg of at least 2mb or the loan of the original picture to scan myself. I'll take great care of it! Please email me the new scan or photo. Thanks again. Peter.
