Visit to The Weald Foundation13th July 2019

Nice to see the WF Jagdpanther on 'Nazi War Machine Secrets Uncovered' last night. Not sure how many 'secrets' were actually uncovered, but the interior of the Jagdpanther was interesting, especially the manual telegraph between the commanders and drivers locations. The 6 wheel staff car was an awesome beast too.
....I know. And Bovington Tank museum too. The mercedes was something else and it was good to see the Horch get a run out too.

As Wifey and I both drive Audis and we have a VW camper, I am wondering if I should change the little old MX5 we have in the garage for a Merc. After all, our transport appears to be very Axis so we may as well focus on one or the other of the bad side.
