    Default Welcome to Paradise


    I had the honor of being invited by the Army and the Lisbon Military Museum, to visit their storage depot.
    Its located in the Maintenance Regiment of Entroncamento. Once i arrived i was greeted by the Lt Colonel Tomás who showed me around.

    The place is a piece of paradise and i had full access to everything.

    My thanks to Colonel Luis Albuquerque, Lt Colonel Tomás, the Army and the Military Museum.

    Me with the iconic MG42, a 1943 dated example

    I wouldnt call it exactly courtesy, but they were indeed recovered in Timor.
    They will be brought to Lisbon for my 2014 Show, along with plenty other stuff.
    Will be on display there.
