    Well done Dave!!

    It is indeed a japanese AEV, known as the 'Type SS'. It was actually modified to become a combat vehicle by adding a flame thrower onto it, it could roast anything up to 200 feet away. The tines on the front are for mine lifting and removing barbed wire.

    Over to you mate!

    To right Dave.
    It's a magnificant monument to what I believe was the last deccisive full scale horse mounted charge in history on the 30th October 1917.The 4th Australian Light Horse drew bayonets and charged the Turkish line over the plain at Beersheba to capture intact the towns vital wells for the loss of 67 killed and wounded.This maneuver turned the whole Turkish front and the road to Jerusalum was now open to General Allenby.
    The Polish were the next to try on mass and we all know what happened.
    Just a note the Australian Light Horse of WW1 were actualy mounted Infantry not cavalry.The concept of mounted infantry came from the Boer War and was highly successful due their mobility and speed of deployment around the battlefield.
    Its a fitting tribute I feel.
    Good on ya Dave,your up mate.
