Wheels and Tracks – Motorfest 2016

As part of Motorfest, Monday the 26th of September 2016, the Military Museum was open to the general public to attend a guided tour of our facility and also partake in a BBQ lunch and then followed by vehicle rides by the adventurous that took the opportunity to ride in “Miss Stuart” with an occasional gun firing, as well as Alvis Saracen Mk 5 vehicle rides.
