yes big effort by all and especially again the Newie boy's who's travel time is greatly appreciate yes the village gained a dozen more dwellings will soon be a town at this rate LOL we had some visits from two members of the Veterans MC and from Alan from the military shop  https://www.militaryshop.com.au/ have a look for all things military they have a great selection not just equipment. he has asked us to put a small display in store the week before ANZAC day that will give us some more exposure and hopefully more members.

Tracey said your welcome and will try to get to more off our tank days down the track sometime,hopefully we'll more tanks running around the place.Your right Wobbly Harrison's PIII camo does suit the buildings considering it was just a quick hit with the air brush with some left over paint.Harrison will definitely come to another day or two as well.
Cheers Chris

That's good Chris tell Tracey she can be our official Tank photographer and correspondent. And I'm sure the Young fellow will be sneaking into your car every tank day from now on with the PIII under his arm  ;D

Cheers

Three cheers for Tracey!  I just showed one of the Sturmtiger photos to my friend, and he thought they were old WWII German photos!  Of course, he was primed because for the last two days he and I were visiting WWII museums here in the Seattle, Washington, US.
