Our plans and trips to military museums
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

good idea, thanks. Anyway I've tried to plan the dates and locations for visits, but I feel like I will have more time than required, so I may do some changes as circumstances allow.

As I said, Museo della guerra per la pace Diego de Henriquez is now officially opened. At the moment only a portion of the collection is visible, they plan to expand the display area in the near future and add more artifacts. So far they mostly focused on WW I, it makes sense considering all the anniversaries. Here you can get an idea and info:
www.museodiegodehenriquez.it/

The rail museum is run by volunteers, it's worth a visit if you are there:
www.museoferroviariotrieste.it/

Sacrario Militare di Redipuglia is another place worth a visit in the area. WW I, with an interesting artillery collection:
www.difesa.it/Il_Minis...uglia.aspx

Hope it will help

Massimo,

thanks for all the information. I have a time constraint, because I'd like to be at Berchtesgaden on May 4th, the day when some men of the 2nd French Armored Division are said to have reached the Eagle Nest 70 years ago. If I can visit Trieste, I will do.

P-O

Yes, parts of the French 2nd Armored Div. reached Berchtesgaden on the evening of May 4th, after the U.S. 3rd Infantry Division, but before the U.S. 101st Airborne Div. (yes, I know what "Band of Brothers" said, but it just ain't so). I will be there on the 4th as well, for the 70th anniversary (I was also there on the 60th anniversary).
(It's unclear who were actually the first troops to reach the Eagle's Nest, or when - it might have been the French, or it might have been the 101st - soldiers from both claimed they were the first.)

anyway I want to get there on the 4th, so we could meet there if you wish. I will bring a British black beret with French cavalry insignias (501ème RCC) and I'd like to shoot few photos. Will you bring a uniform or something?

The AMPS armor modeling convention is at the end of this month in Auburn Indiana, so afterwards I plan to visit Camp Atterbury and the Indiana Military museum in Vincennes, plus various individual pieces along the way.

Beijing - Sure as hell I'm going to visit the PLA tank museum!


It's really worth the trip from Beijing to the huge air museum if you have any extra time. The collection is astonishingly huge. Also going to the Great Wall at Mutianyu is much better than the usual spots. Make sure you are in shape for LOTS of steps. EVERY mountain I saw in China had a staircase.

Going on my German road trip next week - from Munich to Munster, down to Koblenz and then Sinsheim. Was going to go around and see Dresden too, but going to do that in July on the way to Finland! Had to compress my schedule, only in Germany until August.

Hi Jim
If you want to go to Dresden you should go on July 11
That day they will open the big storage rooms
The museum itself is crap but in storage are many interesting vehicles

Thanks for the info Walter; unfortunately we'll be on the road by then and I believe there's a Parade Day at Parola on the 14th which I would like to see!

Cheers,
Jim

I'm on vacation this week and have planned to go to Carlisle and Ft. Indiantown Gap, PA. Any requests from either place? I'll see if anything new on display, take some photos, and publish here or in Flickr. Rick
