    Having fired at tank hulks on Colony Gate at Pribright and other sites, I started looking for others I knew of. some like the one on Browndown ranges (Lee on the Solent) appear to have gone. Others still extant I did not know about, the Churchill 1 on Kithurst Hill Nr Findon, Sussex


    a local historian claims it to be from the Calgary Regiment stationed in the area WW2 used as a PIAT target, she certainly shows many splash marks.

    PIAT Antitanque de 1943 - I imagine some will be able to identify the obsolete Mks used as targets in this video.
