    Peter,
    Correctemondo.............Jaguar J60 4.2-litre petrol engine, a brilliant power pack which rarely went wrong, but with all tanks since their inception, loved the fuel.
    There were issues in the early days I remember concerning the tracks coming off at high speed and being launched over the turret causing a few deadly issues.
    'Tonight my men and I have been through hell and back again, but the look on your faces when we let you out of the hall - we'd do it all again tomorrow.' Major Chris Keeble's words to Goose Green villagers on 29th May 1982 - 2 PARA

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Actually, I do. In fact, I was back in Oz when that happened, but had previously lived not half a mile from the depot from which the tank was stolen when I was there on contract. He drove (and was shot in killed) near where I had been working during that particular contract.

    It happened in San Diego IIRC. He stole it from a NG and hung it up on the K medium on the freeway. Officers cut the hatch hinges and just stuck guns in a blasted!

    There was an APC stolen from one of the Army depots around Perth in Fremantle way that went on a bender crushing/crashing allot of stuff until the driver/thief was taken down by the TRG alive, talk about being insane here is a good one we had an AFL star that had and addiction to drugs that breached the perimeter fencing of a certain place which he must have had real issues with judgement or could not read at the time. It was the location of our SAS Regiments barracks he was lucky. One = he was not seriously injured or shot B = the courts showed leniency. As this is a Commonwealth property the Govt takes a very dim view of people breaching the laws on access.
