  1. Attached photos, taken today at the Great Dorset Steam Fair. PS If anyone is thinking of going this weekend prepay and print your tickets off before you go, this morning I had to queue for an hour and half to get in !
  2. Just seen this footage on facebook of a convoy of WW1 vehicles, making their way to the Great Dorset Steam Fair yesterday. Regards Gary
  3. Picked this up recently at a carboot sale, Trial 82 Experimental Sleeping Bag, didn't realise it is what it is until I got it out of it's carrier just now.
  4. Today I displayed at the Bicester Heritage "Flywheel Show", I took along some of my collection and my G3l and displayed as a field workshop WW2, in Europe, I had the pleasure of a Morris C8 parked along side my display, from vehicle collector Tobin Jones and this added greatly to the overall setup. The show has a varied mix of classic cars, motorcycles, aircraft and a military vehicle/reenactors section, all this and with perfect weather to boot.

    Any WW2 Typhoons Under Restoration?

    Here's a couple of photos of a Typhoon engine I was offered in 2012, found in the Pierrepont area in Normandy (near to Falaise), it was make an offer in excess of 1000 euros, which was more than I would want to spend.
  8. Spent yesterday at the Great Dorset Steam Fair, here are just a few photos of some of the WW1 vehicles, and especially the bells, which are ready to be transported to Ypres next week, for the St Georges Memorial Church (see link below). http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-40751031

    War and Peace 2017

    I agree with Tuggers shower comments, all good, but would like to point out one of our happy campers has a shower secret. While I was waiting for my daughter to come out of the showers, a chap walked up to a locked shower pod, looked left then right and then unlocked it and let himself in, from where I was stood (by the security van), I could see that it was empty to start with and that this was a way of never having to queue/wait !
  10. I think the Wire Cutters No2 that you show, were made from 1944 onwards, not sure but maybe some one out there will know ?

  12. Anyone with one on a trailer, might want to make sure it's well bolted on also !

    This is all fine, but what if Southern Rail are on strike when the "balloon goes up" ?
