Unfortunately, there is nothing there (Aberdeen) anymore. MOST of it went to Ft. Benning, GA and the rest went to Ft. Lee, VA.

Hey Georg, nice review. Not sure if you recall but I was at the same table as you guys in the directors enclosure, sitting next to Neil. Bovington generally has some great events throughout the year, luckily for me I'm only about 100 miles away. Glad you enjoyed it and hope to meet you all again sometime.

Tank Fest? Didn't that just happen last month?

Lovely feature, Georg, with great, sharp photos.

I love the special display of "Little Willie" - obviously the star of the Bovington collection!
