    Default A pair of Matildas on the move

    Something not seen for a long time, two Matilda tanks operating together. Matt McMahon from NSW, Australia is well known in the field of Matilda owners and has been giving restoration assistance to the Royal New South Wales Lancers Museum's Matilda "Ace", which was a veteran of the Balikpapan battle in 1945.


    A great video of Matt's tank with the Lancers one, watch it on full screen!

    Sadly it seems that you can't view the video if you don't have a Facebook account. Shame.

    Yes it was impressive, its always better to have more than one vehicle or aircraft of the same type moving together.

    There is no problem viewing it if you are not on FB. If it asks you to sign on, just click the "Not now" and you will view it, no obligation.

    Thanks all, for some reason I can't view it on a desktop computer but can using my phone.

    Great little video, two together really make it special.

    What a stunning video, things like this help to re-invigorate me, uninitiated people always ask the same question...what are you going to do with your tanks when they are complete....I am just going to refer them to this video and say..."that's what I'm going to do!"
