Default Southern Cross PUMP Spotted in Port Vila

Hi all.
Last November I took my first real holiday ever, a cruise to Vanuatu and Port Vila. Whilst visiting some amazing blue lagoon swimming holes in Port Vila, I found this old pump all the way from Toowoomba, derelict in the bushes. Iím assuming itís a screw pump? Iíd have loved to drag that back home, but I donít reckon the captain would allow it on his ship😂

Hello Mr Muzz
Don't be surprised where you come across Southern Cross gear. Mrs Scotty's dad had lots of Southern Cross gear in New Caledonia and Morrocco. He even had a Kingswood in Morrocco.
Cheers Scott
