This is me and my mate Duncan Mansfield who is like a brother to me ;)
Well we couldn't pass the Guisness Bar without grabbing another cheeky pint :ROFLMAO:
We were at the show for 4 days with 5 days camping with our respective SWMBOs :love:
Duncan runs a Land Rover and Jaguar spares company in Ipswich Brit Car UK Ltd
He is ex RCT and his passion like me is big boys toys.
To that end he has an Aircraft Hangar at Raydon Airfield full of military stuff.
This includes a Chieftain Tank, Saracen armoured car, Stalwart, ex army lorries and Land Rovers etc
Repeat - he has a Chieftain Tank FFS :cool:

So, if you know the spec of this plant OR actually own the machine, then give us yer info' :geek:

Final thought, not much classic plant there - maybe we can engage with owners of such stuff? Flyers perhaps?
Whatever, the owners stories will be of interest in he Classic Plant section :unsure:

Just been browsing the Welland web site - looks good :geek:
Now just got to start planning ahead for 2020 so that SWMBO doesn't suspect :ROFLMAO:

Great idea - perhaps we can put up a separate thread for Welland 2020 and who's gonna go.
It would be good to meet up with guys on this forum :cool:
