And a visual tank joke...

Re: Tankfest 2013


I've been to Bovington Tank Museum several times in the past, quite a day out I must say, well worth a visit. For those whom have no idea what this is all about, here's a quick preview video.





Good find DD.  thumbsup

Re: Tankfest 2013


No problem Diesel, I went there quite a few times as a kid. In fact I remember quite well one of my older brothers dinging his head on the panthers barrel while climbing on the exibit  lol



I don't remember it being in that camo scheme though I'm pretty sure it was just the dessert sand colour back then (in the 1980's!!!)

Re: Tankfest 2013


I recall my first visit there. They had a WW1 War Horse outside that you could climb all over and being a little kid, just had to have a go and slipped Arse over Apex climbing the rear of the track. Took a lump of skin off my knee.  lol

Probably wouldn't allow it now for fear of being sued.  Roll Eyes

Re: Tankfest 2013


Climbing on the tanks wasn't allowed back then, these were indoor exhibits, however one brother on the King Tiger the other on the panther!!!!

I'm sure someone would have a had word if they were spotted  no-no

Still I had a good laugh as no2 son banged his head a good 'un on the barrel as he tried to stand up  rofl
