Sadly the Jacques Littlefield Collection is no more. Hopefully everything went to a good home. My plan to win the lottery and set up a museum did not work out. Here are my pictures from happier times. RIP Jacques.

Valentine tank MVTF Valentine Jaques Littlefield Valentine Valentine Mk I Valentine Mk I parked outside.

Light tank Mark IV Interior - Light tank Mark IV Light tank Mark IV. Notice the front panel is off. This was due to a cosmetic restoration (NOT by Jacques Littlefield who prides himself on performing the most authentic restoration possible) which used bolts that were not of the required strength. It certainly does look very nice though! I attempted to get an interior shot with only partial success.

Light tank Mark IV UK Mark IV - light Early Light tank Front re-attached (2010).

FT17 French tank FT17 Six ton tank M1917 - American built copy of the French FT17 using non-metric measurements which necessitated a virtual redesign.

MVTF FT17 Early US tank FT17 WWI FT17 FT17 - US tank New pictures taken in 2010. 1 & 3 are the same angle but 1 looked washed out due to flash so I took another. I left them both in as they may reveal different details.

Matilda II front view Spare track detail on Matilda II Turret of Matilda II showing smoke launchers Matilda II - turret rear Matilda II - tools Matilda II - turret detail MVTF Matilda II A lovely looking Matilda II in "Caunter" camoflage. You can see the heavy armour castings and the small gun derided (with justification!) as a "pea-shooter". If only the turret could have held a decent gun! For a spell it reigned supreme in the desert.
