The Aussie Offsider gets to go in a real Australian veteran tank at the excellent Brookton Motor Show 2016 at Brookton, Western Australia. As both GreasyJohn and the Offsider enjoy a game or two of the WW2 aircraft-and-tank simulator "War Thunder" online, it's very exciting to see a tank like this in the metal!

Apologies for the often shakey and poor quality camera work, as well as any facts I got wrong, it was too exciting climbing around in a tank! I had technical difficulties from the day, and sadly have no footage of this machine on the move. Needless to say it sounds magnificent! Also apologies to Tony, as I lost my notes and can't for the life of me remember which town he and this wonderful bit of military history are based in!
