Seems to me they've missed off the important bit like, where is the festival?

And a visual tank joke...

I've been to Bovington Tank Museum several times in the past, quite a day out I must say, well worth a visit. For those whom have no idea what this is all about, here's a quick preview video.





Good find DD.  :thumbsup:
It WILL be fine !...

No problem Diesel, I went there quite a few times as a kid. In fact I remember quite well one of my older brothers dinging his head on the panthers barrel while climbing on the exibit  :LOL:



I don't remember it being in that camo scheme though I'm pretty sure it was just the dessert sand colour back then (in the 1980's!!!)

I recall my first visit there. They had a WW1 War Horse outside that you could climb all over and being a little kid, just had to have a go and slipped Arse over Apex climbing the rear of the track. Took a lump of skin off my knee.  :LOL:

Probably wouldn't allow it now for fear of being sued.  ::)

Climbing on the tanks wasn't allowed back then, these were indoor exhibits, however one brother on the King Tiger the other on the panther!!!!

I'm sure someone would have a had word if they were spotted  :no-no:

Still I had a good laugh as no2 son banged his head a good 'un on the barrel as he tried to stand up  :rofl:
