Some more on Oz and Stratford Men’s Shed- including IDEAS of things to make.

Spent some time in  Canberra with  our Shedder friend Len (and wife Ros), then camping with the family, then a day visit to Melbourne and today a second visit to Stratford Shed.

Lancaster rear gunner’s turret. Tiny.












Graham was interested in the rear gunner’s turret because an uncle had been a rear gunner who survived many sorties including being shot down in Holland. They were “sitting ducks”.
