C.A.V. Photos from Graeme Smith

Graeme contacted me wanting some help with items for the Vietnam Veterans Museum

 Graeme served in Vietnam in CAV commanding a M13A1

We are trying to obtain a M13A1 for the Vietnam Veterans Museum at San Remo Victoria.

Graeme went to Bandiana to the old 4 Base Workshops site now known as Wadsworth Barracks and at the Joint Logistics Unit looking for his old M13A1,----------ARN 134290

And find her he did

They fired her up and moved her out of the line

Hooked her up with a non runner and drove her into the workshops

.

She was still a runner and looking rather good

Inside was pretty stark with seating removed
