I found this today whilst poking around in my photos. I took it in 2002. The guy to right was not the one who found it - that would have been Rob Redding of B C0, 5/19 SFG.

One also came back to the US where it was reconditioned and put on Display at the US Army Armor Museum I believe. It may have been this exact one.
