I only just heard about this tank being on display at Trafalgar square yesterday.

If I'd known I would've tried to get down to see it but anyone get to see it? I forgot it was the anniversary.

David, I only heard about it being there because there was an interview with David Willey (Wiley?) from the Tank Museum within quite a good item about it on Radio 4's PM programme yesterday, caught it on the car radio . I expect it can be heard on iplayer.

Thanks. Yes it wasn't advertised beforehand very well which is annoying. From what the article says it wasn't in the square for that long either. It should have been there for a few days so more people could see it.
