Lulworth Range breech explosion in 74 or 75 due to incorrect drills, at least 2 of the turret crew very badly burned.OK, hopefully someone on here can help with some research I am doing. Does anyone remember or have experience of any fires, explosions or accidents in Chieftain? I have heard of a double fatal in 1962 but cannot find anything relating to it or other accidents.
Urban myth I reckon.
Can't link from this phone. Just Google fu'd Lion heart deaths and got a Hansard Page. Apparently there were 3 deaths on that exercise.Never heard that, and I was on Lionheart, but we weren’t told anything
