I have seen this giant crane abandoned near the Public Works Workshop. Possibly used at the old Brunei Airport.

In the 1950's my dad worked in aircraft salvage in the US Air Force as a Special Equipment Operator. I will send him this photo. Note that on the tractor it says "Tournapull". I remember my dad using that term.

Actaually it is for sale or rather up for exchange as the museum wants to concentrate more on WWII and/or on tanks! They already have some 25 different ones. Although 2 T34s and several Sherman versions.
So who is interested??
