Congratulations and well done !! :-D

Looks very chalky soil...is that a good thing or bad thing in terms of state of preservation of the buried tank(s)?

that's right no turret and i had heard the track was used for the bovy covenanater, there were also roof plates missing and cooling shrouds but there was a reason it got pushed back into the hole and i am under no illusion about the poor condition. if it was easy we'd all have covenanters :)

let's get it out and see what it's like. i plan to recover it in the next couple of weeks

 

More intact than a Panzer rebuild

 

Maybe those silver boxes I drag around the world fit a Convenantor
