  1. Ever watch the end of the Vietnam war for us Americans...It was in 1975..I served in the U.S.Army in VN for 2 tours 70,71,72....I watched on tv as perfectly good helicopters were pushed into the ocean off of aircraft carriers..Still get tears in my eyes when i think about it....They said they didn't have room for them....You should see the aircraft junk yards where many expensive pieces of equipment sit and rot....We leave a lot behind in Countries where we have been...
  2. OUTSTANDING....This is what our hobby is all about....
  3. Don't forget to take extra batteries for your camera...Lots of pictures needed..Have a great time....
  4. Great project Tom.....Thanks for sharing the pictures....Take plenty more pictures as you restore her...The very best to you.... Joe in USA
  5. Very nice Jeep...............
  6. Issah, You are so right...I grew up in the Chicago area and after I got out of the Military i never seen a Military vehicle in a car show....Been to a lot of shows over the years and never seen one.....I hope to get my Ferret in someday...I am trying to find any of the Canadian Soldiers that might have been in it (54-82586 UNEF 1216) but so far in 16 months haven't found them.. I have sent emails to all the Canadian Units but no answer....I would really like to display the Ferret with pictures of the crew....We have a great hobby preserving history.... Stay safe.....
  7. Yes the Jerrycan is a great example.....A great hobby we all have....
  8. You folks have a great time and take a lot of pictures......
  9. Thank you very much sir... Joe in USA
  10. But why the word stamped on it USED ? What would that stand for ?
  11. Can anyone help with the history on a shovel...It is 35 inches long with a D handle and on the metal part it is stamped USED.. I know they used them on the Willys Jeep in WW2... A friend said it was his father's who was a U.S. Army Soldier in WW2...A tank driver....But I have seen pictures on the internet with the shovel mounted horizontally on the drivers side of a WW2 Willys Jeep........ Did WW2 tanks come with these types of shovels ? Thank you all... Joe in USA
  12. To anyone that goes if you could take some pictures or a video of the tanks it would be pretty interesting to post on here....Thank you...I hope you all have a great time..... Joe in USA
  13. They should open it up for tourists and make some money from that....
  14. Pekka, Thank you for posting another Canadian Ferret.....Wish more people would post about the 1954 Canadian Ferret MK1's....Myself and all of us in fact wish to honor the crew with the markings on the Ferrets and to see old Ferrets in service.....We have to get these Canadians going...I have sent several emails out to Canadian Army Units and no response...Also are you familiar with MLU (Maple Leaf Up) check that site out....Robin suggested it to me a few months ago but it still says they are temporarily closed for new admissions...Nice browsing thru....
  15. WOW...What an incredible story and build..This is really interesting...Thanks for all the pictures....The very best to you... Joe in USA
  16. I have never seen that picture Robin....Where do you think that was taken at ?
  17. It is the lack of oxygen that slows the rusting process or preserves it........I have opened some old mines from the old 1876 gold mining rush days in Deadwood South Dakota USA and have found a few things made out of wood and steel that are perfectly preserved...Really amazing to find the stuff I did as the mines I worked in closed around 1920 and over 80 years later I found the items..
  18. WOW.What an amazing find.Thank you for posting about this stuff guys...very interesting...
  19. Lucky for you and the Ferret it will have year round good weather...I sent you a PM...
  20. How is the Jumbo doing these days ? I hope well..
  21. Very nice jeep and display.A great display of history to share with others...
  22. If you Google T34 tank there is an amazing story about one that they recovered after about 60 years in a mud bog in Estonia.......
