Thanks Hanno, I am sure our friends in Aussie will appreciate the fast link, as time is running out to get to the auction. So was the Turret Grant or Staghound?....I am just too lazy to look up!, Cheers Andrew.

My pleasure, always interesting to see these "barn finds" popping up. It seem this was the only military vehicle in the collection. It was safeguarded like "Fort Knox"

The turret is one off a Grant; surely there is a hull for it out there somewhere.

Seems there are remnants of markings on the side of the turret.
