This tank was the same shape as the others. This picture shows it in its beginning stages of demolition.

This is definitely a different shaped tank. This tank field wasn’t demolished until the early ’90s.

Regarding the tanks. I was in Elliot Road, a few yards from my house in Grosvenor Street. A large plane flew over the trees lining the avenue. It was so low i waved to the pilot and he waved back. I saw the markings on the plane and made a bee line to home. My mother and sisters would not believe me. They looked out a side window and saw the painter on top of the tanks getting off as quick as they could. We were dispatched to the shelter which as usual was filled with water. It was said that every second tank was filled with water, but i can remember the railway line in front of the present school saturated with thick oil.

This pic must have been taken during demolition, the tank can be seen in picture #650 and it's the same shape as the others.
