Why would they allow those fellows to have a new truck when they don't even take care of their building! I would tell them...First you clean up your room and make your bed, THEN you can have the new truck to play with!

Cop the length of the weapon leaning near the sign. That's a man's gun!

Looks like they are running motorcycle gas lamps for headlights on the T.

This section can shoot farther at night than they can see for sure.

Hey Allan, it is a massive rifle, the first anti tank rifle, built by Mauser in 1918. 13.2mm.

Wow, that's amazing that back then they were saving stuff for future generations to view--AND they have part of the Red Baron's plane! Wow!

An Australian Sergeant shot the Red Baron down. The AWM also has his boots and various other items of his, collected at the time of his death.

The Red Baron came down behind Anzac lines. Many of the Australian and New Zealand troops souveniered parts from his plane. A number of them form part of a museum display in Omaka, New Zealand, in a life sized diorama of the crash site.

That museum is an outstanding tribute to early aviation.

Allan from down under.
