This afternoon my boss says, " have you seen the new Tank Museum yet?" Nope says I. We acquired two concessionary tickets and had a few hours looking at the new displays. It has been many years since I was last there and boy has it changed for the better. I didn't know the Armour Corps roots were in the Royal Navy. The first tanks were land ships and under the command of the Admiralty. In fact one was HMLS ? - His Majesty's Land Ship whatever. Never too old to learn as they say. One of the old Mk 2 tanks was based at Whale Island until WW2. It has been donated to the Tank Museum. Evidently HMS Excellent trained the early tank crews gunnery! Worth a visit if in Darset!!!!!! Especially you AFCO types, it's only across the road from your RNSR.
