Has anyone been to the Batey ha-Osef Museum ?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

I haven't been there myself, but I covered it in my manuscript on Preserved Tanks in the Middle East. It is in Yafo (Jaffa) and the address I have is 35 Eilat Street, corner Elifelet. Telephone 03-5172913.

Trevor, We will try to give them a call after the holiday, If we get there I will post pics of what we see. I don't think they have a website but they seem to have some interesting things. Thanks

Where else are you going in that region? There are lots of collections and tank monuments around there.

I have the museum as located in Tel Aviv, see link below;

www.asiarooms.com/trav...-aviv.html

At Jaffa I have the ''Collection house museum'' with AFAIK a Merkava mk.1 tank.

Edit: I just looked at google earth and it seems that it is a part of Tel Aviv or something like that.

Is a nice country with a lot of military things to see. I was there about 12 years ago and it was (then) surprisingly easy to spot aircraft and see navy ships etc. Enjoy youre trip!

Regards
Lesley

I'm pretty certain Tom Gannon has. If you can find one of his posts here or on www.Missing-lynx.com you can contact him.

Good news. If you email me (trevor-larkum at armourarchive.co.uk) I'll send you a copy of my manuscript on Preserved Tanks in the Middle East.
