Since I did NOT have the foresight as did Jumping_Turtle, I will have one of the following hats on my head.

I hate to wait until the last moment :teethhappy:. I guess I'm kind of OCDish that way.

Most definitely not!! England has proper food. I will be driving to Cornwall for some Yorkshire pudding.  Then I'm off to Weymouth for a pasty, and then to top it all - Bournemouth for a meat pie and french fries (NOT chips but french fries. I'll have fish 'n chip in Weston-super-Mare.)

You can't even make Yorkshire Puddings at those latitudes!  The air is all wrong.

The Weald Foundation and The Tank Museum are pleased to announce a last-minute addition to the TANKFEST 2019 line-up – the foundation’s World War Two Jagdpanther.

 

The Jagdpanther, of which there are just three running examples in the world, was a German tank destroyer based on the chassis of the Panther tank.

The Tank Museum’s Director, Richard Smith said; “We are very pleased to welcome the Weald Foundation and their Jagdpanther back to TANKFEST. We are all looking forward to seeing this beautifully restored vehicle in action again and running alongside an impressive line-up of tanks from World War Two.

 

“This will include the Panther tank from Le Musée des Blindés in France – and the opportunity to see these two vehicles running together is something we know our visitors will be very excited about.”

It will be the first time that a Panther and the Jagdpanther will have been seen in action together in the UK. It will be running on all three days of the event in a parade of World War Two tanks.

Around 400 Jagdpanthers were built in total and went into action later in the war, serving on the Eastern and Western Fronts. It was a formidable weapon – but fortunately for the Allies production of these vehicles was limited by shortages of raw materials and disruption caused by Allied bombings.

 

The Jagdpanther, which has been lent to the Museum by the Kent based Weald Foundation, last appeared at TANKFEST in 2017.

If you haven’t already been you might want to consider War and Peace in Folkstone one year. A bit different to Tankfest as it’s a get together of military vehicle owners and there’s camping onsite. If you want to see a T-34 close up that’s the place to go as the owners also take them for spins around the site.

Standing a few feet behind a Comet while it revs its engine is an interesting experience.
