    War & Peace Revival - 2018

    The rule against pegging out an area is thanks to that guy pegging out half a soccer field for himself and his Landrover, and the other half for his mate that comes tomorrow with a jeep... People will complain if other people do that, people will complain if they're not allowed to do it. Sometimes you just can't win as organizer. Overall I'm glad this rule is there, although I understand you are negatively surprised to see some people still manage to start early. I'm happy they still allow people to sell some bits & bobs from their pitch, it makes walking around that much more fun and in the past I found some great gear for friendly prices there. I also understand they will step in when you have a complete market pitch and don't pay the rate real stallholders pay. As for the dust being kicked up, that's not the organizer's fault and there isn't much he can do about it... or does anyone really expect a marshall is posted every 50 meters or so with a laser gun? I guess a few signs reminding drivers of the dust they kick up will be far more effective.

    War & Peace Revival - 2018

    Went to the first edition as a visitor and wasn't impressed, didn't bother with the winter-edition and heard it was even worse. I will follow it too but won't hold my breath.

    War & Peace Revival - 2018

    I went for a full week and had a great time again! While there are always things that can improve I just don't understand that attitude of trying to bash everything. If you don't like it, adapt next year or just don't go. It's really as simple as that... I went through the stalls every day and it was indeed a bit quiet except for the Saturday, but I guess that was largely due to the heat. Usually I went around 9am, then would go back to my tent around noon for some shade, a cool drink, a nap and maybe reading a book before heading out again around 3pm. After dinner I would usually walk or drive around the fields to admire all the vehicles on display. Can't comment about the toilets either as our group had booked our own (cost me a whopping £5 for the entire week) but the public ones seemed a bit scarce indeed. Also, I agree about the bins. There should have been more. There were a good number of water points though, which were essential in this weather. I will absolutely try to go again next year!

    Obituary

    RIP... Geoffrey Wellum's exploits were the basis of the BBC film 'First Light' with Sam Heughan playing Wellum and in which he himself featured too. It's a very nice movie that I would recommend if you haven't seen it yet. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1653661/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    I guess that could very well have been a war-economy thing?

    My experience (although that might have changed now) is that they don't even bother to check if you actually have a vehicle with you when you report at booking-in...

    I think you can pre-book now and pay cash on arrival.

    Found in France......

    I think this is Dainler-Benz Fahgestellnumber 441246, but I'm not 100% sure. It is listed (with a different reg number) on http://the.shadock.free.fr/Surviving_SdKfz8_SdKfz9.pdf

    Essential support vehicles used to be free parking... so not anymore?

    6 or 12v jeep?

    With good connections and cables of the correct size there really is no need to go to 12V. Unless it's a radio jeep, 12V only detracts of the value in my personal opinion.
