  1. It is with great pleasure that we can announce that the highly acclaimed “Tracks to the Trenches” (TTTT) is set to be developed and repeated in 2016 (TTTT 2) and 2018* (TTTT 3). In line with recently announced schedules, these events are now being planned for May in their respective years. 2016 (TTTT 2) – a 3 day event from 13-15th May 2016. A very similar format to the 2014 event (TTTT 1); with photo-charters being arranged in advance of the event weekend, evening photo-shoots during the event, access all areas passes, an emphasis on Schools/Group visit packages, plus much more! The 2017 event (13-14th May) is again planned to be a smaller event, specifically looking at Kerr Stuart locomotives and celebrating the Centenary of our flagship engine “Stanhope” – but it is still hoped to maintain a WW1 presence in the Trench area. 2018* (TTTT 3) – a 4 day World War 1 centenary event from 10th – 13th May 2018. Currently anticipated as really special year. Further details to be confirmed shortly, but hopefully developing on from TTTT1 and 2. Please keep the dates in your diaries! The organisers would like to invite any interested exhibitors or traders to contact us through the www.ww1-event.org website – we would be pleased to hear from you! Entry forms etc will start to be released shortly. * Subject to final confirmation

  12. May be of interest to the many members in Essex, on Thursday 13th November Graeme Cooper, a retired career Royal Green Jacket, a founder member of the Guild of Battlefield Tour Guides, and John Cooper's son, will be giving an illustrated talk on his father's career in the wartime S.A.S, and his postwar exploits in Malaya and Oman. Johnny Cooper started out as David Stirling's driver, taking part in most of the famous operations in North Africa as well as Operation Houndsworth in France during the summer of 1944. In 1945 he took part in the liberation of Belsen. When the S.A.S was reformed he rejoined his old comrades in anti-guerilla operations in Malaya, then on the Jebhel Ahkdar in the Oman, and in the 'secret war' in the Yemen. He left the S.A.S as a Lt Colonel, and saw out his career working for the Sultan of Oman. Graeme has amassed a large number of photographs, many unpublished, as well as recently rediscovered tapes that Johnny made after his retirement. Last year he presented a variation on this talk to friends and neighbours in the village in two packed-out sessions over two evenings, as well as to the Special Forces Club in London, and he is now opening it out to a wider audience. The presentation is to be made in Moreton, where John met and married Graeme's mother, Constance, and where they both lie at rest today in the village churchyard. Tickets are available from Alison Cooper alison_cooper@outlook.com at £10 each, with proceeds to Help for Heroes. The event will take place in Moreton Village Hall from 19:30 hours on Thursday 13th November 2014.

  17. Dear All, Hopefully the right place to post this! Just a short note to give an update on the Tracks to the Trenches event plans, as September is getting worryingly (for the organisers) closer! This First World War centenary event is heavliy focused on the battlefield logistics - in particular the narrow gauge light railways. We have made great strides in the development of both our site and the event. The event website (http://www.ww1-event.org) is being updated as regularly as we can. The latest news is that the on-line advance ticketing facility is now live! Over the last few months, and continuing during the summer is the development of a section of British Trench. This features the fire-trench (with step), communications trenches, machine gun pit and small first-aid post. Coupled to this trench, in the "service trench", is a trench tramway (or foreway) - which will keep it supplied and assist with medical "evacuations". Our main event field is complete (which will house the bulk of th eliving history area), and the larger "field railway" is rapidly taking shape. Over the next few months the site will start to see roads/pathways installed. The Titanic Brewery are supplying a large Real Ale bar which will be located our large marquee - the preview of which sounds like a mini beer-festival alone! We are hoping for a special edition beer this year - brewed to a 1914 recipe. We have also been securing various road vehicles - watch our website for some press-releases very soon! More are always welcome. All the latest entry forms (Trader, Living History, Vehicle/Exhibit) are now on the event website (www.ww1-event.org) in the entry forms section. We look forward to hearing from you all soon - please feel free to discuss anything with us. We are still open to ideas! Cheers,

  19. Good Morning. The MRT has recently issued the following press release. Release follows:- The Moseley Railway Trust will mark the centenary of the start of the First World War with a major event, entitled Tracks to the Trenches – 2014. The event will be on September 12, 13 and 14 2014. The Trust is confident that this will be one of the major narrow gauge and First World War centenary events of 2014. The First World War was one of the key turning points in European history – and narrow gauge railways played a major part in the war. All combatants made considerable use of tactical 60cm gauge railways, supporting the colossal demands which the first truly modern war put upon logistics systems. This moment in history helped define and standardise the gauge of many post-war industrial railways (Ashover, Nocton, Leighton Buzzard, etc), through the use of readily available War Surplus materials. The Trust is pleased to be able to confirm the booking of the first visiting steam locomotive to the Tracks to the Trenches - 2014 event; Baldwin 4-6-0T No 778 from the Leighton Buzzard Railway in Bedfordshire. No 778 has not made many visits to other lines since restoration was completed in 2007, so this event will provide some unique locomotive/rolling stock combinations and photographic opportunities. These 10-12-D class locomotives (the classification designated by the manufacturer) were supplied en-masse to the British War Department from 1917 onwards in all theatres, eventually totalling nearly 500 by 1918. They were the most common steam locomotive operated by the War Department Light Railways during the Great War. Based on a very similar design previously supplied to the French Army in Morocco, they had a limited life expectancy on the Battlefield of a mere 6-8 months. Gareth Roberts, one of the event organisers of the Tracks to the Trenches event commented - Today, only a very small number of these machines have survived and an even smaller number are operational. We are extremely grateful to the Greensand Railway Museum Trust and the Leighton Buzzard Railway for making available this locomotive, fully restored to original appearance, for this important WW1 Centenary commemoration. A website has been set-up for the Tracks to the Trenches event – it’s at http://www.ww1-event.org. The Trust would be very pleased to hear from individuals or groups who wish to participate in/bring vehicles to the event – contact can be made via the website. The Trust is also seeking sponsorship for elements of the event – there are opportunities from main event sponsor to individual donations.

  22. I have received an email from Martin Oliver about the Great Dorset Steam Fair and probably the easiest way of explaining is to copy the press release he sent me here. PRESS RELEASE WORLD WAR ONE COMMEMORATION DISPLAY – GREAT DORSET STEAM FAIR 2014 News from Martin Oliver at the Great Dorset Steam Fair is that with 2014 marking 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War, the GDSF will be commemorating this centenary anniversary with its own tribute display at this year’s show. This thoughtfully assembled display will feature a selection of steam and historic vehicles and ancillary equipment which participated in the War years 1914-1918. If you would like to be considered as an exhibitor in this special commemorative display please send full details in writing of your proposed exhibit (including a recent photograph) to Great Dorset Steam Fair (World War One Display), Show Office, Dairy House Farm, Child Okeford, Blandford, Dorset, DT11 8HT. Alternatively, please send Martin your details by email to martin.oliver@gdsf.co.uk Careful consideration will be given to all applications, particularly to those with rare and unusually interesting exhibits.

  23. The Carrier WorldRecord has stood for nigh on a decade now since2005 in Corowa, Australia. We Kiwis think it's time to take the trophy from the Aussies and place it onour mantelpiece next to the Webb Ellis Cup andBledisloe Cup. On January 16-18, 2015, the New Zealand Military Vehicle CollectorsClub are hosting an attempt to break the record at the Wings Over WairarapaAirshow. The record attempt will be part of a Warhorses display at the show, which willalso feature rides, section of WW1trench, and themed displays of soft-skinand other armoured vehicles. We aim to not only beat the record with numbers of carriers, but also with variety of models. Attending so far are 2 original Bren Carriers, Loyds, English andCanadian Universals and variants, andan example of each LP model and their post war militarymodifications (3" mortar, Flame thrower, MMG, 6pdr tractor) and others. We hope to see a few forum members hop over the ditch, or head down under, for a look! We will post more updates later. Keep Calm andCarrier On!
