    Default Wartime in the Vale - Ashdown WW2 Camp, Evesham 26 & 27 June 2010

    Following the success of last year's with 250 military vehicles and 200+ re-enactors, I would like to invite those who attended last year and any other vehicle owners to what will be the Midlands largest military vehicle event so please either register or visit if you can.

    If you've not been to the site it really is quite unique with all the Nissen huts and different types of air raid shelters etc. especially when its full of vehicles and people. Its a 40 acre site with a decent sized arena and fairly flat ground for camping.

    Paul, I've already filled out my entry ready to post!

    Looking in the Green Sheet I could not see any sign of a MVT National Show (nor W&P come to that) so that can only swell your numbers in June.

    Thank you Clive, as far as I am aware there isn't a National MVT Show at Kemble any more, so yes we are hopeful people will consider this one.

    Hello Mark, Yes your RAF display sounds interesting, though I've not seen it, does it need to go indoors? if so I might be able to find space in one of the Nissen huts where we had a US Air Force Display.

    Think the organiser of Kemble, is planning on doing a show but I don't the details.

    Just clicked on link & it said June went to look at another page & now it reads May!

    There is another good show at Kemble worth going to and thats the Steam Rally 6, 7 & 8 August and that has a large military section.

    I think there are two events: "The little Vintage show" in May ( pics are of the show) and the MVT event in June .
    So the entry form is for the may event.
