    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,
    Cheers

    Gday Journeyman,
    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.
    Cheers
    Dave
    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

    Hi 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.
    Cheers
