A KING TIGER TANK Has been put on display at Bovington


A rare German tank - a veteran from the Normandy campaign of World War Two - has gone on public display at the Tank Museum in Bovington for the first time since its capture.
The German King Tiger (Sd Kfz 182 Tiger II) was captured after a tank battle in Nothern France in August 1944 and has been temporarily added to the museum’s collection from the Defence Academy at Shrivenham where it has only been seen by a select few.

In my days at Shrivenham 1957 -1959 It was known as the Royal Military Collage of Science, and was not a bad posting as it’s got its own golf course.
