regarding the tank proving ground and training area used in WW1.They have also discovered lots of photographs taken at that time.Hopethis might be of intrest to some of you tank buffs out there.If I hear anything more I will passit on.

Please keep us informed.

Canada Farm was the base for D Company HSMGC - several photos have been identified of the Company in August 1916.

More would be of great value

Hi Andy & delta. I live in Barnham Just south of Thetford. I have not heard anything about the eleven museum but would be very interested if they were to open one. Im interested in where the tank training area may have been but have never had any proof of where that is. i only recently found the whereabouts of Canada farm from a book i was reading. Any photos out there would be good to see, i will endeavour to take more recent photos if possible.

I live just over the county border in Littleport and would appreciate being kept up to date with details of the museum.

Found this picture hanging in the new Elveden Estate restaurant. Got a few days off work soon so planning a trip to the estate office to see what records they might still hold.
