Osprey will be working from home from Tuesday 17th March. We plan to continue all our operations, while reducing risk of infection by having staff work from home. Please note that we are doing our best to manage incoming post and parcels. For the time being please refrain from sending items to our offices and please assume that items that you have sent to us, have not arrived with their intended recipient. Our priority remains the wellbeing of staff, authors, customers, freelancers, suppliers and distributors. We would like to thank all for their support whilst we transition to virtual operations.
In 2001, I went for to Havana, Cuba for ten days, staying at a central hotel near the bars of Hemingway. These are the photographs that I took while there. There are others, but they will have to be included in future issues.

A2-73

A2-73   Russian produced tank outside the entrance to the “Museum of the Revolution”. Sorry, I do not know what name or model it is.

A2-74

A2-74   Same tank but from across the road. Note the age of the vehicles parked.

A2-75

A2-75   Russian tank. This one was inside the museum in its grounds, again name, model and date is a mystery to me.

A2-76

A2-76   Cuban Aircraft used by the Navy, make and model unknown to me, circa 1958.

A2-77

A2-77   Cuban aircraft used by the Air Force, make and model unknown to me, although I believe that one of these aircraft was British made and sold to the Cuban Government before the Revolution. Note the man near the wheels.

A2-78

A2-78 A Sam Missile in use at the time of the Missile Crisis. Note the wrecked jet engine to the front of it. This is given as a U.S. plane shot down during this period. I believe it belonged to the U.S. spy plane that was shot down.

A2-79

A2-79   A Home Made Armoured Vehicle for the Revolution, based on a tractor with
             thick metal plating.

A2-80

A2-80  A Home Made Armoured Vehicle for the Revolution, based on a tractor with thick metal plating
