Netherlands:
Legermuseum Delft

A very unique piece in the museum's collection: A Japanese Light Tank from 1937 with an 'almost laughable' 7.7mm gun. It had a crew of only two, the gunner/commander and the driver. This particular tank had been left in the Dutch East Indies by the Japanese when they capitulated in 1945. It was then put to use by Indonesian freedom fighters in their struggle against the colonial rulers. The Dutch captured the tank in 1947 and shipped it to Holland.

The Army Museum is closed. We'll meet again in 2014, at the National Military Museum in Soesterberg!

Ireland

Ireland isn't really one for tank museums but for visitors of that inclination Collins Barracks is worth a look with a number of smaller unusual armoured vehicles as well as a vampire jet fighter.
