Neville, No problem - I mentioned to the curator that I was passing it on to you, however, I also said should I ever come across any more - then I would get them to/for the museum...

Hi David, many thanks for the BAFVS 1d token which I received in todays mail, it is greatly appreciated & will be added to my collection of British Military Currency. My next goal will be to try & obtain the 1/2d token.
I will phone Charlie & get your email address & phone number then I will contact you. Charlie if you read this & have that info would you please be as kind to forward it to me on my private email address.
Thanks again all & have a great Easter weekend.....Neville.

Neville - Just to say thanks for your kind comments - incidentally, after I had sent you the 1d token a colleague (having heard of me sending it off to you) handed me a halfpennny token. I have since donated that one to the AGC Museum who have just acknowledge receipt of it, plus they don't have any at all in their collection of BAFSVs! So all's well that ends well....
Best wishes
David

Neville - I suggest if you want to - send the BAFVS you mentioned direct to the museum curator: The Adjutant General’s Corps Museum, (FAO: Mr Ian Bailey), Romsey Road, Winchester, SO23 8TS. or email before you do to: curator@agcmuseum.co.uk They might appreciate it! Good luck and Best wishes....

Go to Have a Guess in the menu and tell me what the three white rings on the fume extractor denote.

I know the answer to this one..........The tank is commanded by a Sgt. Go on give me the credit of being the first to answer correctly.

Sorry

My regiment uses them to let others know that it is 3 Troop. Can't always tell otherwise when cammed up

Charlie,
I'm sure you're right with the explanation that the 3 white rings can be seen when the tank is camouflaged BUT why would you deliberately cancel out the cam by exposing part of your gun barrel ? or have I missed something. I can remember that we would use the radio to find the exact position of vehicles within our own troop and by the same means know where the other troops were etc etc.
