Ground Dug Canadian Covenanter Tank

Recommended Posts

During the 2nd World War the area in which I live was used by Canadian Troops for training prior to the D Day landings and prior to there departure they buried a number of their vehicles and tanks which were no longer of use. In 1971 the Covenater Tank currently in the Bovington Tank Museum was dug and subsequently restored to it's present condition.

A further Covenator has been dug up in the same area for a forthcoming television programme made by the Discovery Channel and hosted by Suggs (of Madness fame) and is currently on view in the grounds of a local vineyard.

Will show a few images of the wreck as it is at the moment.
