Some nice AFV there Rene,cheers mate.
Love the old Centurion in the back ground,the modified Universial with the 2 pounder is rather cool to.
As well as the haflinger(poxy spelling sorry).Their all cool mate.
Was very suprised when i came face to face with a Matilda Infantry Tank for the fist time,rather small machines for their application(funny that they were Infantry Tanks as the 2 pounder didn't have a HE round).
The 9th Divi Platty and rang on the other Universial was a nice sight,my grandfather was 9th Div. serving in New Guinea in 43' until malaria got him sent home in early 44'.
Have a good one Rene,
Is that US Long Tom 155 SP hiding back there?
How's Gunny today,settled down yet

Now that's a real beauty.She'd near do back flips when fired hay.Is that French SUD from the 60's in the background?
Imagine a cannister round letting fly at close range.
Yep a very very nice piece.
Mate thanks for posting her.
No she's a Bristol Sycamore ex RAN

Thanks for posting those pictures Rene`. That is the Matilda I was talking about. They have a Leopold tanks dotted around up here now and you see the odd Abrhma's on the roads. I shall get the camera out and try and get a couple of photos. Just went through Bonnie Doon and missed taking a photo of a German mortar (WW1) in the park. Thanks Mark
If you drive past the ww1 German mortar again a couple of images of her will be great.
I think the Matilda is a mk2.
She fired all the standard rounds except CANISTER.Thats a disapointment.Just imaging the effects of that at close range,devastating.
i think its a british 3.7'a.a.I believe they were also manufactured in australia during ww2
