Some pictures I took last Memorial day. Unfortunitly, being a holiday, the museum was closed, so no pictures of inside the building.

There is a reason why that 105 is missing it's sight mount. it was liberated by a Cdn unit which rolled it's gun many years ago.

Wouldn't be the 5th Regt of Victoria, by any chance? I know they go to Ft Lewis for some of their shoots, knew the CO back in late 90s, excellent armory and museum of their own.

I can't be specific as there was only 2 arty units that went there and YFC on a regular basis. I will tell you the story over a beer hopefully this spring if the mini I&I there comes together.

I certainly hope it comes to that!
