As promised, highlights of the last day of our recent trip to Dorset. I clearly have a very understanding wife who agreed to drop me off at the Tank Museum at Bovington for a couple of hours while she took the dogs off for a long walk...for some reason the attractions of hundreds of tanks seemed to elude her!! Funnily enough when I commented on Facebook about where I'd been there was a very clear gender split [with one exception] with comments ranging from 'the dullest museum ever...', to .ooh...my favourite...'. I'm guessing that shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone!
The museum is chock full of tanks from Little Willie through to present day Challengers etc, themed in a couple of main halls. I spent the time wandering around feeling quietly smug when I identified the tanks before seeing the information board , which happened surprisingly more often than I expected. It was surprising [to me at least] to compare the relative sizes of the tanks... some surprisingly small and others terrifyingly huge.
Here are a selection of photos from the day, in no particular order.....
