On Friday the 10th February Panzergruppe South attended the Australian Defense Force Academy open day held by the Defense  Community Organization this event is for new postings to the area and display's what is available to personnel. It is a great day with the Royal Military College band, Precision Drill display, RAAF hot air balloon, Bucking bull, Reptile display, petting zoo for the kids and various food and drink vendors. The day itself was a stifling 41 Degrees Celsius or for you Doc 108 F  so some what sweaty as we were in the gym this year lucky to be out of the sun  8). The day was attended by Ian, James, Ross and my self as always thanks to you blokes it is you that make our club.

108F with high humidity would be much nastier than the rather dry 120F I experienced in the California desert in 1980.  Worse yet, I have not seen the 1/6 Jeep or Kubelwagen for over a decade.  At that time, I saw a great variety of 1/6 items in a store seemingly misnamed as "The Ship Chandler," now long out of business.  Of course, I wish I had taken out a loan and bought everything in the store window.
