Campania residents visit Tank Museum in Dorset

This week (May 2018) residents went to the Tank Museum in Dorset; one of the largest collections that follows the history of the Tank, with almost 300 vehicles on site!

Residents explore the tanks up close, some of which were involved in real battles from the first and second World War.

These tanks had artillery holes in them; Upon reading and finding out the history of what they’ve been involved in was quite macabre. Especially because there were soldiers that actually died in these tanks.

We also got to see the German Panzer Division and the only tiger 1 tank in the world that still runs.

Resident Simon especially took a keen interest in the history of the two World Wars. As a result really enjoying the exhibitions and reading about all the things that happened.

We all had a fantastic day out and can’t wait to go back as we have now acquired annual passes.
