Bovington's Tiger 1 (July 2014)
« on: March 21, 2015, 08:35:47 AM »
Don't mind sharing it was quite emotional to see, stand alongside and be able
to actually touch something that you have, seen in pictures, on docos and had
an attempt at modelling in the flesh, just truly an awesome machine.

No excuses for this being pic heavy it was always going to be just that!





































Sadly out of focus, you can just see the bare metal where the round lodged under the turret.


As you can see she has a bit of damage, interesting to note most of which towards the more vulnerable
rear end. However the damage that brought about her capture, a round got stuck under the turret
causing it to not rotate and the crew abandoned her. Talk about Samson and Golith, yeah thats me
in my MBRCTC t/shirt to prove I was there! Thank you to the Bovington team, awesome!!!!!
