As well as yesterday’s military ambulances, there were plenty of other trucks to admire at the open day at the Army Museum in Fremantle, including the World War 2 era Chevrolet Blitz truck above.

There were also two Unimogs – Universal Motor Gerat vehicles, built by Mercedes. The one above served in Afghanistan from 2005 to 2011 and has been “substantially modified” and “up armoured”. The one below has been differently modified to carry supplies. Modifying Unimogs looks a bit like the military equivalent of customising classic cars.
