Matilda Diaries

Follow the renovation of this historic Second World War tank.

4th May 2016

Following on from the news regarding the Matilda II renovation, the Museum is producing a new series of videos for The Tank Museum YouTube channel that will track the progress of the project called "The Matilda Diaries".

Throughout the course of this new series, some of the questions and challenges involved with the project overall will be explored, as well as the nitty gritty of dismantling and reassembling a 70 year old vehicle.

There are questions of authenticity, honouring provenance, funding, and the vehicles' place in The Tank Museum's collection to be considered, as well as the endless mechanical problem solving. 

The Museum is hopeful that by the time the vehicle drives out of the workshop we will all be better informed about this great British tank.
