How many Mk IVs at Bovington?
Permalink   


In this video announcing Bov's acquisition of the "War Horse" tank https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFbYTYt6Ok8 curator David Willey says (45 secs) that the special effects company came to "copy and replicate one of the Mark IVs we have in the museum." I thought they had only one. Was it a slip of the tongue, or I missing something?

Ta. That's what I thought. Don't know why DW says that.

Anyone know when Excellent went from Whale Island to Bov?

Correct. 1 genuine MkIV at Bovington plus that War Horse replica. Slip of the tongue I imagine, unless he was including the Lincoln tank. There are only 3 survivors in any condition in this country.
