Chieftain no 47 arrived today after pacing up down like an expectant father .
I hope to research and build Chieftain 02EB71 Mk6/2 built 1966 assigned to the QMT Bovington Armour centre in Sept 1979.
In 1982 ish the tank Museum arranged for a mate and myself to play tank crew for a day for services over the years, unfortunately we were not allowed photographs as Challenger 1 was on low fluid trials ( madness to an RR engineer) so only 1 photo exists at the wash station at Bovington.
I want to find out about it’s early years and fate if possible. Dave W
