Default Report on Centurion Tanks - Korea

Hi Guys
Spotted this while surfing, thought it would be of interest - http://antipodeanarmour.blogspot.co....t-by-lt-j.html-

NZtankies [not tankers - those we reserve for oil, milk & beer - in bulk] served alongside the Brits in korea.

Default RE: Report on Centurion Tanks - Korea

Nice report and very well written. We had a company of Cents a few miles to the southwest of us and assumed they were Brits, but never had any contact. At a distance, they sounded quieter than our M-46s and that 20 pr gun seemed very accurate from the limited views we had. I was only there toward the end of hostilities and never saw any Cromwells...maybe they had been withdrawn. Very informative post and thanks for sharing.
