IWM Mark V Question.
Permalink   


I have only just stumbled across the fact that the Mk V in the IWM was at Bovington until 1966, as a "gate guard," presumably in the open. Since we recently dug up some old photos/postcards of Bov tanks outdoors, I wonder if there are any of the Mk V knocking about.

Here's a photo my father took, back in the mid 70's. Not the MkV, but the MkIV "Flirt/Daphne", the MkVIII & what appears to be the MkIX behind it.

I believe "Flirt" (as displayed at the moment in Lincoln) was displayed in the British Museum prior to it's trip home.

The Mark IV at Lincoln, 2743, was part of the Treasures of the Nation exhibition at the British Museum between October 1988 and March 1989.

 I walked across that very same grass some years before, clutching my Box Brownie. IIRC, Thunderclap Newman were in the charts at the time.

"Thunderclap Newman" were relatively short-lived, so it was between 1969 (when they were formed) and 1971 (when they broke-up).

 I sort of made thst bit up. It could equally have been John Fred and his Playboy Band. Or the Nashville Teens. Or something.

I first went to Bovington the day Elvis Presley died. I don't believe the two events are connected.
