  1. were my eyes playing up or was the Sherman crabbing left track in as it came down the hill
  2. Adrian thats what I used to notice when I was driving Firepowers Chevy Quad, 80 year old ex gunners Deaf as a post always got into the commanders seat quicker than I could get into the drivers and as for the grins on their faces afterwards, well it just made your day, especially when they were with screaming kids in the back.

  4. I am due to see Simon Dunstan in the near future as he hopes to do a new large book on the Centurion and he has already seen the 700 odd from RAWHS colln when I first met him, and feels that some of the views held may tell differing stories to those of the past. View of single Cent line at Leeds attd.
  5. In response to supertrack I have visual evidence of new that Cents and chieftains starting off inverted in the jig then being turned right way up, also the cent turret line at Leeds was all turret ring up until the last job on it was finished

  11. The third shot down showing an underwater scene in anonymous-generalpics claims to be a Matador but front and side windows dont look right could it be an albion CX22?
