THE MILITARY VEHICLE PRESERVATION ASSOCIATION (MVPA) HELD IT'S ANNUAL NATIONAL CONVENTION IN TOPEKA KANSAS.
MY WW1 M1917 AMBULANCE WAS A MAJOR HIT AND STIRRED AN AMAZING AMOUNT OF ATTENTION FROM FANS AND MILITARY VEHICLE ENTHUSIASTS
IT WAS AN HONOR TO WIN MY FIRST NATIONAL COMPETITION.
I acquired my first artifact when I was 16 years old. It was a 37 mm tank round from WW1 dated 1917.
40 years later I am still an avid student of the Great War....and still collecting WW1 artifacts.
Based on my mechanical and engineering back ground I have a different slant on my findings from WW1. My interests lay in the mechanical development and escalation of the weapons, machines and tactics of the armies engaged in the brutal world war.
Then They Made a Model of My Ambulance......
