The World War II Museum was a collection of war relics – apparently the largest of its kind in private ownership in South Africa – that stood in sheds in Ron Selley and Kevin Langefeld’s back yard. Among the thirty pieces, all in running order, are a Stuart light tank, Sherman M4A1 tank, a CMP truck, 6x6 Ford lorry from 1942, a Diamond T tank transporter, Ford Bren/T16 carrier and two Marmon Herrington armoured vehicles.

Three of the tanks in the collection were sold to the Kęszyccy brothers in Poland in 2009 and transported to Poland in 2010.
