    We had a Valentine tank in the kids play area, as a bit of playground kit while I was at the big Ordnance Depot at Ngaruawahia on the North island during '68. IT was a job in NZicon or off to Malaya ..... yet again - and then off to do a similar job in SVn. Well, I told the other bloke he needed the experience and a man has to take the rough with the smooth so I opted for NZ.

    Anyway, I wonder what happened to the Valentine.

    Peter, I don't know about the Valentine at Ngaruwhahia but there was another in the playground at Ohakune (near Waiouru Camp) that has since been fully restored by a collector, as have several other field guns etc. that were once in public areas. Several are still on public display but many have been sold/given to collectors. Many district councils are a bit on the PC side (but not all!). Collectors take great pride is displaying their toys at MV displays around NZicon each year.

    We also had an old war time type Jeep Woodsy that could be used for unit approved 'recreation' at the weekend on a 'repayment' basis. I used it a couple of times, took my girlfriend over to the East coast for a couple of long weekends to Tauronga. Told the ASM me and a couple of the blokes were going fishing. He called me a 'lying pom' - but nodded his approval. Sadly the other two blokes couldn't make it.........

    Tauranga is quite a nice place, but you wouldn't have noticed that!
