I had a nice chat with the crew at Tankfest- apparently it's a bit of a hairy drive in the wet as it only has rear brakes.

Oh and I forgot my camera :oops:

That is not actually the Museum's Rolls, It is one brought over from Ireland: It was the vehicle that was escorting Michael Collins when he was killed. The Irish Cavalrymen who brought it over were a really nice bunch.
