Another set of pictures.
I have been asked to keep my display set up for another week as it's proving to be quite popular, especially with the veterans.
Next week from Tuesday the 24th to Saturday the 28th of Feb across from the HMCS Port Albernie museum in the Comox Mall.

Very nice collection. That must have been an awful lot of trips back and forth from the car to the table.

Default Heritage wek Comox valley

It took 5 days to set the display up fortunately I am only 5 blocks away from the mall.
My display has proven to be very popular. I have had a number of army vets go through and wax nostalgic about their time in the army.
One world war 2 vet who was the no 1 on a bren was tickled pink to hold a bren gun again.
He's almost 90, near blind and had a huge grin on his face.
Another vet asked me if I had a 58 set as he had carried one during the war.
I am still in the process of gathering parts for the 58 set.

It looks like a lot of thought went into designing the display. I can see it being popular.

I was asked if I could bring my carrier in but it's up on blocks in my carport
I still don't have any upper armour for it yet and I am still sourcing out parts for it.
I still need upper armour, engine cover panels, MK I boxes, wheels retired odds and ends.
The coordinator for this years air show was through and was impressed with my collection and asked me to put on a display for the airshow in August.
