Pilots in the World Wars started decorating their planes with so called nose cone art. That's since also happened to the helicopter. Four such examples here are displayed together. Corporal Richard Aucoin painted these onto Canadian Griffon helicopters during the Afghan War.
A mix of equipment: mechanized transport and navy guns.
These barrels and other items at center here constitute one of my favourite artifacts in the Museum. This is Kurt, a weather station from the Second World War. A German U-Boat planted this station at the far northern reaches of Labrador in 1943. It operated for a short time before going offline and was forgotten. Decades later a German scholar going through war records found out about its existence, and the Canadian government was notified. Looking at the components of Kurt, it would look to any passerby like something placed by the government. And that part of Canada is very isolated and sparsely populated, so it's little wonder that it was unnoticed. Now it has its home here.
Two views of Leopard tanks, the contemporary tank used by the Canadian army. I've been in one once.
