Has anyone have memory and/or photos of the Military Armoured Tanks that were sitting on a vacant block of land a street behind the Woody Point Ice Works? It is probable that they may have been purchased for their engines. There was another one converted to an earthmoving machine (bulldozer) at the Duffield Road Dump and Sanitation Dump.
