On the highway connecting my home town of Kalgoorlie and Perth lies the small town of Merredin (pop. 2800), I haven't been into their Army Museum as we usually only stop there briefly to stretch our legs during the six hour trip between the two cities, but I was able to poke my camera through the wire and take a few quick snaps.


Grant and Valentine tanks. M113(?) and Huey(?) in the background.




LP Universal Carrier with 2 pounder gun. These were the locally built version of the British Universal Carrier.


Poor old LP Carrier has seen better days.


M3(?) Stuart and I'm not sure what the armoured car is, British vehicle of some kind and I'm sure someone here will be able to identify it.




I also found this link with some more pictures, including a few inside the Museum itself. Hope you found it interesting!

I wouldn't mind volunteering at a place like this and help scrape some rust and maybe get to drive something sometime. :D
Bit of a commute for me though.

A couple of weeks back, you posted in my welcome thread! Didn't notice a fellow West Aussie, #feelsbadman :( ;)

I've enjoyed your AARs btw, that 12,000 point battle must have been a marathon to put together!
