Here's an idea of how Bovington cares for their battered and non-displayed relics - this was my Indiana Jones moment:

A huge, brand-new monster warehouse...

I can't imagine why the sign for the display did not end up with a beer sponsor. Even the smaller "World of Tanks" wording would support a brewery concept! What a missed opportunity...

I asked them while there and they said that other than restoring the turret numbers and Balkankreuz to the Jagdtiger to reflect it as when captured, they would leave the paint as is - accorsding to the gent I spoke with, they believe that those are the paint schemes they wore when captured.

Don,
Thank you for the great pictures. The items in storage are well worth another trip in time.

They had a map on the wall that traced the route of the Elefant - well over 5000 miles to get it from the USA to the UK via ship and lowboy.
