STEEL - THUNDER
169031 on the water
This web site is a collection of photos, stories and memories from times past, of all the Centurion Main Battle Tanks that were found in Australia which served in the R.A.A.C.
My search took well over six years and with a lot of help from all you out there.
So far 142 Centurions were found from a total of 144. There were 143 Centurions owned by the Australian Army but there are two 169080 Centurions in existence. One being a rebuild of a mine damage Tank, the other being the original Hull.
I am hoping that in time we will find the rest.
The first part of my search was made and recorded on CD's. There are the original CD and a second one of hundreds of photo's. I then continued on and did a second disk and again another one of more photos and video clips. It was at this point of time that I started this webpage. If you would like to see the whole story from the start, you may like to purchase the Cd's.
Anyone that would like to purchase the CD's or make contact with me, can phone me on 03 5781 1312, or use the guest book below. Regards Col.
