Ian Barraclough visited the Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers Museum and took a number of photographs of the Sherman Beach Armoured Recovery Vehicle (BARV).

Thank you for sharing the pictures. Anyone have scale drawings… ok, that might be asking too much

There is a book published by Crowood Press by Duncan Howarth - Scale Military Conversions. This book has a good set of plans of the BARV.

Yes, I'm familiar with this book




Just looking for more drawings of this vehicle, if any exist.

Thanks for sharing, I did not know about this conversion. The driver position must have been quite claustrophobic when underwater...
