The following vehicles used to belong to the collection of the Pourville Military Museum. This was located on cliffs near Dieppe but closed in September 1990, apparently because of lack of co-operation from the local authorities. The current status of the vehicles is not known. The museum used to have on display a large number of military vehicles and some artillery, and various small military exhibits including a turret from a Renault FT-17 Light Tank, a Goliath Demolition Vehicle, a Bren Carrier, an M29 Weasel Cargo Carrier and a Caterpillar Bulldozer.
