Dingo Scout Car, Studebaker, Carley Float and so many stories

A rare and previously unseen Australian armoured vehicle, the Dingo scout car, and a captured German Flak 38 anti-aircraft gun are now on display in the new-look Second World War Galleries of the Australian War Memorial.

New items have been added and a number of displays have been upgraded with audiovisual presentations including the HMAS Sydney and Kokoda Campaign, while iconic items such as the German Kübelwagen will return to display.

Additional new items include Australian Breda anti-aircraft gun used in the siege of Tobruk, unique Chevrolet lorry, a civilian Studebaker sedan with its producer gas unit and an Anderson Air Raid Shelter.
