The Tank Museum, Bovington Dorset.

A week in Dorset over the Easter Holiday was  a great excuse to visit the Tank Museum at Bovinton. This turned out to be a great day out with examples of all types of armoured tanks spanning nearly a hundred years from the first MK1 tanks as used for the first time  in the trenches to up to date military campaign vehicles as used in Afghanistan. The museum halls are well lit and spacious and crammed full of interesting information regarding the history and development of these awesome vehicles.
In fact a two page advertisement in the ' Motor Cycle ' encouraged Motor Cyclists to enrol into the Army and become tank drivers and mechanics on account of a Motor Cyclists enthusiasm and aptitude for mechanics.
