Most recent update Sunday March 3rd 2013 - Please go to the News and Media section for details of new photographs and comments. Other recent changes are in the tab “the Tanks” under “Other Churchill Tanks” and in the “Radio” and “Weapons” sections of “Inside the Tank”.
This website tells the story of the restoration to full running order of three Churchill Tanks.
The restoration is being done with much help and involvement on the part of the Tank Museum at Bovington and the actual work is currently being carried out at the Isle of Wight Military History Museum.
The project aims to bring these unique survivors back to life, not only as a tribute to those who fought in them, but also as a means of reaching out to veterans and a new generation of children who have diminishing knowledge of the role these famous tanks played in our nation’s history. As part of this process, Haynes Publishing have commissioned me to write a book about the Churchill Tank which will hopefully be published this year in conjunction with the Tank Museum.
The tanks are available for filming and documentaries.
