    Vickers 6 T tank track.

    Hi,

    I show you a relic that I dugg up last week.

    As you see I remain faithful to the English equipment.

    Find made in Belgium.

    This tank track was found in the presence of many other pieces from september 1944.

    Unfortunately, I can not find any picture of this tank in Normandy used by british troops.

    I dont think its a Vickers link ,but it might be a Valentine track link .Later marks of Valentines were used later in the war as OP tanks in artillery regiments .

    hi Big Dave, this link is too small for a Valentine tank
