The Tank Graveyard...

I recently visited Taji and was showed around the Tank Graveyard - miles of destroyed, broken down and dumped Iraqi armoured vehicles and guns.

 

Virtually all of them were covered in grafitti - it seems to be a thing to send a message back home "Happy Birthday Marie" and "I love you Jeanie" with a photo of the words painted on the side of a smashed up armoured vehicle.

 

There is something uniquely sad about the way a dead tank looks...
