    My Dad took a lot of photos and sent me a few of them. I am going home in a couple of weeks time and will get a CD of all of them. I'll have a look and if he's got one then I'll post it.

    Thanks for the info on the tanks - fancy me not spotting a T34!

    For me this is most beatifull Cromwell. This tank have insignia 1st Polish Armoured Division. This type tank was use by 10 Regiment Horse Rifles (this was armour unit) who was recon unit of division. Origin this unit was 10 Birigade Mechanized Cavalery ( this was first independed Polish armour unit) and was fight in Poland 1939 and France 1940.
    this symbol you can see on the tank
