Question

Good day, this splendid wooden tank measuring 8 1/4" end to end has been acquired.

I have no idea what it is of. Im not a WW2 aficionado so I am looking for some help please. 

Also, if we ID it, is there one in private hands anywhere?

Seems that they are quite a rare machine with none running in private hands. We must be due for someone to dig one up under and orchard somewhere and restore it...... Thank you Richard Farrant

I have seen one in private hands and in restored order a few years ago, it came from South Africa and I understand there are others still out there on display at ex-serviceman clubs.

From that site it appears as is Carl Brown and Adrian Barrell had a project vehicle, is that still anything they are working on one wonders?

The Ex Littlefield one now at the Collings Foundation might have a chance of being a runner.

I have a plan .....

Well, that was likely my error in comprehension of what I read so aplogies are offered to you Adrian and Carl if any slight was taken.

So from what it seems there is not one in private hands running anywhere, just a few museum ones
