This is the turret from an ex-Australian Army Staghound armoured car. It is located in the small town of Murrayville in northwestern Victoria.

This Staghound turret is mounted on a Matilda hull and is located outside a military museum on the Atherton Tableland in north Queensland. The photographs are interesting in that they show the armoured cover over the mantlet that was added to later Staghounds.

Note that the 'gun barrel' is just a pipe.
