    Tank Museum tour of ammunition archive

    just a taster of the hundreds of rounds that are held in the archive (in racks and shelves rather than in display cases). Don't forget there are only a few places left at 45 each which includes a tour of the museum itself which will give you more info on the items displayed than you would get on a normal visit, tour of the workshops to see restoration work in progress and of interest to this group, a conducted tour of the support collections which includes the ammunition archive. The date is the 22nd October and you need to phone 01929 462359. Enjoy!

    for some reason Dave, this system won't allow me to upload photos of He & smoke rounds, you'll have to see them when you visit. I thought you would appreciate the experimental 20pdrs though! Dave

    HE/smoke

    lets try this then! The yellow is actually mid buff but the artificial lighting in the archive makes everything look yellow. The Mk 2 HE 17pdr is post war, hence the calibre marking.

    thanks boys, just to prove you can teach old dogs new tricks after all, woof woof
