Blimey! Is that place still there??? I remember going there in thelate 70's -
they only just let us in - I guess the army uniforms swung it.. I still have
the photo's of that place then.. piles of churchill tanks, DUKW's, M10's,
crates full of trailes of all types... amazing place. Only place I see
anything like it these days is in eastern europe. I must piut those pictures
up on the website sometime.
