I have returned from my break after spending the whole year travelling and working in tanks and I got this video to treat you with some very special Tank Porn I recorded at Tanks Trucks and Firepower 2019:
I took the soundtrack off so you can enjoy it to its fullest!
Hope you enjoy!
I and the running Panther of the Musee des Blindes in Saumur (that if you remember was the poster boy for this year’s Tankfest), will be participating in the NUTS weekend of the Bastogne Barracks War Heritage Institute.
On 14 and 15 of December, the Panther will join the Sherman Jumbo ‘First in Bastogne’ and other vehicles from our collection in a number of dynamic demonstrations at the Vehicle Restoration Center – War Heritage Institute / Bastogne.
The Panther will also feature in the official ceremony on Monday 16 December at the Mardasson Monument, together with our Sherman Jumbo as a symbol of reconciliation.
This will be the Sherman Jumbo’s first-ever attendance and is currently receiving the last restoration touches for the NUTS event. I got to see it 2 months ago when I visited the Bastogne Barracks and its condition is impeccable!
Currently editing footage from my trip to Belgium!
Earlier this summer I got to see at the Victory show the only, as far as we know, M3 lee in the UK and I am very happy to tell you that is finally fully restored and on the move!
Here’s the latest video of the Armourgeddon’s team that did an amazing job getting it restored!
WW2 Historian James Holland came to The Tank Museum to choose his Top 5 Tanks. Unsurprisingly they are all from the Second World War! Top 5 Tanks playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list…

As scheduled for post Tankfest, Our Shrivenham Defense Academy videos are now starting to come out!
This is one of my favourite armoured vehicle places in the whole UK!
My best mate Ed Francis and I visited the Shrivenham Defense Academy and in this video, we discuss how the AS-90 Self-propelled Artillery came to be as a result of the SP70 failed project.
A special thanks to SDA for having us!
Hope you enjoy!
Here’s my newest tank video before attending Tankfest, for those going as well I do hope to see you there!

Special thank you to Weald Foundation and Harkonen aka Duarte Teixeira for the invite!
