Cobham Engineers, Apprentices lead Centaur tank restoration for 70th D-Day anniversary
LEATHERHEAD, UK -- Cobham engineers including apprentices Claire
Bewley and Sam Day have helped the Memorial Pegasus museum in
Normandy, France, restore a famous British Centaur Close Support Mk
IV tank - called Vidette - to its original former glory. Vidette
was one of only 80 Centaur IV tanks ever built, one of only five
thought to remain in existence, and the only Centaur Mark IV known
to survive the June 1944 D-Day landings.
