    There are tank museums and then there is The Tank Museum at Bovington. There are Tiger tanks and then there is the only operational Tiger 131 at said Tank Museum. Owen sends in a great card of the famous Tiger, making this a very strong addition to our field reports.

    Nice card from Owen. Patriot though I may be, I can't let this go without comment
    The French armour Museum at Saumur also has a running Tiger - Ausf B
