Just got back from a trip to Portsmouth, England. While it’s paradise for a naval buff (if you’re at all interested in naval history, it’s a must-see, especially the Historic Dockyards), there are some land-based military vehicles at the D-Day Museum, including the Jeep above. There’s also the Wight Military and Heritage Museum on the nearby Isle of Wight (just opened this summer) but I haven’t been, so can’t report on it. I understand it’s possible to drive a Centurion tank there!
