Hi Richard,

Yep that's the place. I thought that Harry had given up on armoured
vehicles ? I bought two T16's and a Windsor carrier out of there in the
mid 80's. And had terrible problems trying to purchase a Centurian
bridgelayer as they were clearing the yard out. I seem to remember that
the guy in charge of the yard was called Buckingham.
You are right also about trying to purchase from the boatyard section.
I wanted some brass portlights, and there was no way they would even
discuss the prospective sale.

Did you get to meet up with Eddy Smith at Beltring ?
