Have a look over at my writer's blog today for a rant that's overdue concerning the events of recent days in my city.
I start today with a look at artillery of different eras.
Close by is a truck I showed in yesterday's post. A British made Fordson mobile canteen was vital for the army, keeping the troops fed during the Second World War, but also providing food for those victims of the German air raids. It's open, so you can see the interior space and the equipment inside.
Armoured cars and tanks came out of the First World War. One of them is included as the last item I'm focusing on in the Gallery. These provided mounted support for infantry.
It's here at right largely in silhouette.
One last look into the Gallery for today.
The ramp leading up out of the Gallery and towards the main entrance is lined with war art, most of them being large canvases. The first of them is the dramatic painting The Taking Of Vimy Ridge, Easter Monday 1917 by Richard Jack, done in 1919.
