Tiger(small)Sorry Becca’s, no Japanese tanks.  The main display tracks WW1 and WW2, through to modern conflicts, but concentrates on the European theatre mostly.

There may have been a Japanese thank in the big shed area, but tanks were parked up side-by-side and didn’t make good photos.

Here is my favourite.

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.
