The Research Squad

We are a group who share a common passion towards the preservation and restoration of historical items of interest. Our aim is to professionally document, research and publish studies on significant subjects in a variety of media, for the wider public to enjoy. In addition to the books we publish, this site will contain large amounts of information in the way of galleries, drawings, diagrams and research projects for free use of wider communities.

To this end we are also currently working in close co-operation with The Wheatcroft Collection, a privately owned collection of some 200 plus major military and civilian items. Our intention is to publish a series of books on important items within the collection, whilst also working with the collection to raise its public profile via its website. We would like to express our sincere thanks to Kevin Wheatcroft and his staff for the time, access, and help given without which we could not have accomplished our work to date.


Welcome to the newly rebuilt website.We are currently collecting images, research and other material in preparation for our next projects which include the restoration of ten Shermans and four Hetzers.
