Armed Forces Day

As a former member of HM Forces it was particularly interesting to find an eclectic display of military equipment and vehicles displayed at the Tower Headland and in St John's Precinct in Blackpool today.

The mix of Blackpool's buses and trams along with armoured vehicles made for an unusual setting - particularly with some of the equipment originating from Soviet and German forces.

Armoured cars and trams - whereelse but on Blackpool's promenade !

Needless to say the Germans always seem to get in on the act although this vehicle was built in Czechoslovakia or so the description says.

I believe this is an Afghanistan military vehicle registration on the budget mobile artillery piece.
