An arsenal of mines, shell-casings, and mortars from a variety of different conflicts. The shelf holds such weapons as a British anti-tank mine, heavy infantry mortars (which could be hurled up to 2800 yards), and an aerodynamic 'wind-tunnel' shell made in Val-Cartier, P.Q. Among the displays on the floor are an armour-piercing SABOT from World War II and a Russian mortar. Forming an interesting juxtaposition to these weapons of mass destruction is the frame to the right, which contains hand-sewn sympathy cards from England. They are a subtle reminder of the misery and suffering this pile of metal could bring. (Senior Veterans Military Museum, photo by Tom MacDonald)
