    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I remember reading that the Matilda never had pale blue as a camo colour, it should be pale grey!...

    I was hoping to see the Matilda A12 at Bovington tank museum this year but its in the workshop with a broken gear box. Someone put modern gear oil in it which did no good

    They were a pretty good tank, if they had been able to mount a bigger gun and be a little faster they would have been a force to be reckoned with!..

    Have a flick through these interesting pic's of captured (and sometimes modified) Matilda's, including one that was captured and then recaptured by the Aussies in the Western Desert.

    Infantry "Matilda II" page 1

    Use the arrows at the bottom of the page to scroll forward. Well worth a look!

    Regards, Ned.
