North East Land Sea and Air Museum 2 - other exhibits

I posted the first part of this museum visit a couple of weeeks ago featuring the aircraft collection.  Now for the other (land) exhibits.  Above is a good old Ferret.  I'm sure I could fit one on my drive.
This may look like a toy DUKW.  In fact that's essentially what it is!  Built by the Morris company I don't think it got past the experimental stage.
The museum has a number of these German WW2 handcarts - which were essential to the mobility of infantry divisions. 
Rather less handy is this German 20mm Flak gun - a delightful little thing.
Another German handcart - just the thing for carrying the shopping at a wargames show!
A german towed field kitchen - essential!

British 120mm MOBAT

This late model Bofors AA gun stands guard outside

The 'Home Front' exhibit included this display of toy soldiers

The handcarts are delightful Tim, I may fudge some of these for Das Heer.

I look forward to seeing them! You can get them (at a price) from SHQ:

Brilliant handcarts Tim.

Your infantry divisions have trucks? So rich....
