The War Memorial is letting us know about a big refurbishment in their much loved WWII galleries.
After the refurbishment, visitors will be able to see a number of objects that have not previously been on display, including: a rare Australian armoured vehicle, the Dingo scout car; a captured German Flak 38 anti-aircraft gun still in its original desert camouflage; a unique Chevrolet lorry and Breda anti-aircraft gun combination used by Australians during the siege of Tobruk. The HMAS Sydney showcase will feature a new audiovisual presentation, as well the exhibition on the Kokoda campaign. The iconic German Kübelwagen will return to display,
Additional emphasis is being given to the “home front”, with a beautifully restored civilian Studebaker sedan with its producer gas unit that powered it, and an Anderson shelter that was intended to protect families in their backyards.
The Dingo in particular looks fascinating.
