    Any project under way to retrieve it, Paul?

    I'm sure greedy eyes are looking at that...

    There has been plans to retrieve it but due to the ongoing dispute ( over 20 years ) on the ownership of the T 34 Beute Panzer that was found at Johvi it has been left where it is , plus it would be a more difficult extraction due to the location and the weight of the Tank .

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I'm sure though Paul, major TV companies would love to do a documentary on some thing like this.

    I know ££$$ are the usual downfall on a project like this.

    DVD sales alone would make this a exciting prospect..

    But I'm sure the wrangling will go on for a long time yet

    We can only hope, but I wonder if Mr. Wheatcroft is sniffing around

    Bumping up my old thread with a question.... now its the 80th Anniversary, surely the tank is going to be tidied up ( or has it and I've missed it? )
