  1. These are still def owned by the MOD. I did contact Bovington and they are fully aware about the vehicles but have no interest in them what so ever. Im still awaiting news regarding the hulks from the MOD. gareth.
  2. Ellington Banks is a driver training area mostly, so no live rounds on site. I believe the Mk1 is worth saving as its a historic vehicle and shouldn't be scrapped.
  3. I received this email from Major Ennis who is the training safety officer and whom is in charge of Ellington Banks, Hello Gareth I have raised the issue of refurbishing the Mk1 Tank Hulk with my HQ in Warminster, coincidently and may well be fortuitous they are looking in to all tank hulks, gate guardians and other such pieces of equipment around the MOD estate. If I hear anything further on policy with regard to this issue going forward that may be of interest to you I will be in touch. So its a not a no but not a yes.
  4. Hi everyone, Time to pick your brains, recently I was allowed to access Ellington Banks training grounds Ripon to look at two Chieftain hulks. One is a mk11 mostly intact but without barrel or engine pack. The other is a SP Mk1!! How do we go about getting the MOD to release the MK1 before some bugger comes along to scrap the old girls? I have lots of interest in restoring the MK1 but I don't know how we can get either of them released. Any thoughts will be helpful. Gareth
