My family and I visited the site yesterday 08.09.2019. Sadly the tank has now been removed (I guess by the farmer) and only the huge footprint of where it has laid for so long is visible.
Does anyone know where it went and why. I hope not just for scrap.

Hey @rmurphy! Thanks for the update, and I’m sorry for that the tank wasn’t there for you to see. Looks like it was removed recently for restoration, and “The tank will eventually be relocated to a British Museum being constructed in France to recognize the D-Day landings.” Thanks again for sharing your (unfortunately tankless) adventure!
