20-24 June 1983 Canadian Army Trophy accident

Recommended Posts

I am sorry to have to ask this, however I am unable to find anything related to an accident that occurred during the 1983 competition. I was part of a US Army helicopter aircrew then and was on about 75 yards away from an accident that involved a German Leopard tank and a British jeep type 4-wheeled vehicle. I provided first aid to the single surviving occupant until emergency crews arrived only moments later, the two other occupants I am sorry to say were killed instantly. Can anybody please provide me with any status on the one surviving occupant or if he survived and any news articles or formal documents that might memorialize this tragic event? Thank you.
