It's a nice movie tank.  Shame they couldn't get an actually Mark 1 or a proper replica like the one Guy Martin was involved with.  Bovington's two original running examples have been retired because of the wear and tear.

theres also a big re enactment on Lytham Green, Lancashire this weekend......tanks and all sorts of other militaria, plus tents bivouacs and the odd Spitfire and Messerschmitt 109  to see.....sadly didn't have my phone or camera, but the whole mile length of the green was taken up by it all......what a sight to see.
