The restoration will result in a Churchill MkIII* gun tank and Nigel has generously volunteered to share his restoration photos and commentary with us. This will offer a unique insight into the restoration process, the decisions that are made and also offers excellent opportunity to look at the workings of the Churchill tank in detail.

Stowage and Fittings:

A key part of the restoration process is the identification and aquisistion of the many items of stowage. Nigel has contributed an extensive photographic library of stowage and equipment and using these we have been able to bring the vehicle 'stowage' and equipment diagrams to life. Initially we shall concentrate on the turret.

Talking Points:

In this section we shall discuss issues raised during the restoration.

  • To assist in the restoration process Nigel would really like to hear from veterans and anyone with photographs or bits that belong in the tank. Nigel can be contacted at
