    Great photographic tour, thanks for sharing.

    The airplane displays remind me of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. It is dimly lit and difficult to photograph properly.

    Thanks very much for the photo tour. Its been years since my last visit. Its a moving place for Australians. John (Jack) Edmondson was my grandfathers cousin. His VC is on display there. You can imagine the esteem he is held in my family. Regards, Paul

    The 109 is the only one left in its original war time colours...it has a fascinating history that is laid out well, it had a wing replacement and one of the prop blades is marked to another aircraft
    The 262 was stripped back of post war paint to reveal what you see today, it has the RAF markings as well it carried after it was captured and evaluated.
    The desert cam uniform is from Iraq, it is from 2006, it's from the mob that we took over from on the second rotation of the Al Muthana task group. It was taken from a soldier on the last day of the tour after his last patrol, he basically was told to take it off and hand it to the Army history unit with everything he had on him and his pockets, uncleaned, just as he was wearing it....the night before he was tipped off that it was going o happen, so his mates in his section swapped bits of kit so they would all have a piece in the war memorial...this goes back o what happened on the last day of WW1, where a digger was told to remove his uniform as he came in from the trenches....it's still in the memorial, mud and all
    Cheers Tony
    Here's a shot I took years back of that WW1 uniform

    My daughters school has a week long excursion to the AWM mid way through 2017 which I'm hoping to go along to, she's already told us that she really wants to go. She takes a lot of pride in knowing that her family has been involved in the Australian defence force since the boer war and I'm proud of her for taking an interest, she's a good kid. If and when it goes ahead I'll post up some pics, cheers Rene.

    Love it, Rene! Very nice.
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie
