    Nope - both the AFVs were sat in the carpark. The Saracen was actually in a parking space like a regular car! :grin:

    No wonder it's an air museum-I mean what kind of AFV museum would not label it's displays? Unless the give out tank recognition guides.

    The Chieftain at Elvington WAS labelled at some point - my photo has attached notes that says it's the prototype (hence oddly-shaped hull). Funnily enough, it doesn't appear to made of mild steel :grin:
