    G'day guys, took the family on a little trip today and thought I would post some photos that might interest you lot. First set of pics are of the beautiful war memorials found in a park at Toowoomba.

    Thanks Eric and Paul. Next up was a trip to the Army Aviation Museum at Oakey. Oakey is home to Australian Army Aviation and also a Singapore Army helicopter training unit. The museum itself is only small but well worth the visit, also of note is that Oakey is the place that hundreds of RAAF P-40's, Spitfires, Boomerangs and Mustangs met their end at the hands of the scrappers post WWII.
    First up is the Auster MkIII, one of 56 MkIII's to serve with the RAAF

    Excellent pics, bro, always good to see that a country is dedicated to preserving monuments to those who have paid the ultimate price in service to her!
