    Default Something i found in a old WW2 era train carriage being restored

    As a very keen photographer i spotted this old train carriage in the train yards. It was being restored. I couldn’t help myself and go inside for a look. While looking around i pulled a mirror back and found this little note written by a soldier as these carriages were used to transport troops off to Fremantle so they could head overseas to fight.
    I know its nothing to interesting but i thought i would share....

    Those fans are collectables. You should secure it and place it in your collection room. It will look great in a 40-45 display

    Edit: I missed the "being restored" bit.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Vey nice to see this, but those figures for the Luftwaffe losses in 1940 seem wildly optimistic!

    Marc, I just wanted to say your photo of the carriage is fantastic! I'm very much into urban decay photography, and the monochrome look. Great shot.
