Bovington

I made it back to Bovington Tank Museum on Thursday.  The last time I went there was in 2007, when there were major renovations taking place, so I had to go back and see how it had changed. 

There is a whole new area which traces the history of the Tank from WW1 to modern times.  It is a fantastic display, superbly done and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the history of armoured vehicles.  The museum is in the heart of the English Army, Tank training area at Bovington and if you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the Regiments vehicles training, from the many public viewing areas or even pass armoured vehicles travelling along the road.

The Museum has a huge range of ‘working’ tanks and puts on live displays in the arena during the summer months.  Unfortunately, there wasn’t any on the day I was there.  I’ve taken many photos and will post more when I return to Australia, but here is one just to tease you.

    C’mon Sculls,
    Now you must be inspired to collect 15mm WW2. Just think of all those armoured regiments you can order forward. You know you want to……….. maybe early war????

    Saxons finished by the way! Good to see your enjoying the trip.
