Bovington Run

On a fine but chilly late September morning eleven members of the Devon section set off for Bovington where the world famous Tank Museum is located. Travelling by way of Honiton a stop was made at Bridport for coffee where some members from the Dorset section joined the run.

Led by the Dorset boys we continued on a very pleasant route using roads that were new to most of us.

After lunch in the museum cafe the party split up with some staying to see the tanks whilst the rest went on to visit the grave of Lawrence of Arabia at Moreton cemetery in Dorset, and then to the location of his fatal accident. See: .
I myself stayed and spent an interesting two hours viewing the many exhibits on display in the museum.

The day was enjoyed by all who went, with no breakdowns, although Roger from Cornwall had some trouble when his magneto came loose.
