Thanks for "biggin' up" my trip to the home of the tank. smile

During the evening, I will be showing several "never seen before" family photos, reveal a local hero and provide an interesting link to Flirt II - now returned to the place of her birth

I have real doubts that the tank at Lincoln is the same tank that bore the name Flirt II at Cambrai - but don't mention that in Lincoln, it'll start a riot! Good luck for the talk.
