  1. OK folks. Entries now closed. I am more than full :sweat: I have enough vehicles to contend with now and thank you to all those who have booked in. There will be of course those that have booked in who will not be able to make it as sometimes life 'stuff' gets in the way!!! This year I will be strict on anyone who arrives and isn't on the list - I am afraid they will be turned away as I am governed by strict numbers this year. I have worked long and hard on this and infact as we get closer the work load increases dramatically so I am not having anything screw up my work. I have created an email list of everyone who has booked in so keep your eye open for 'round robin' emails with updates and finer details etc etc Fantastic!!!!! Best wishes, Jack.
  2. I took Katy my 54 for MOT test. Despite the brakes being more than adequate for the rolling Road, one of the front flexi pipes had been nipped by the steering stop. This particular hose has been a pain, but if you're replacing or move a flexi hose on the front, be careful about the routing that it has the room not to catch. Everything else passed no problem. One oddity on Front position lights, sidelights to the rest of us. Post 1935 a vehicle does need them, showing steady white light to front. Now Katy hasn't got any conventional lside lights! They are also supposed to work off the same switch as the headlights, which is a complication on a 54. The front black out lights worked so that was fine, but I'm going to fit another set, probably small LED to the outer extremities for saftey sake.
  3. OK folks - now for something completely different. I have never ever been so busy in all my life - life and living has certainly come back with avengence this year THANK GOD! So at the end of the month Pathfinder Online upgrade and and expansion will be live. Amongst the 1,000,000 new changes (ok exaggerated a bit there) we have a resident artist by the name of Andy Jones. Andy has been asked if he could put his mind to some art work for A&E 2012 - for a couple of reasons 1. to help raise funds 2. for everyone who would like something unique to remember the event by ( T shirts etc are coming next). A3 professionally printed on a limited run of 150 giclee prints, signed and dated by artist Andy Jones, this unique piece commemorates Armour & Embarkation 2012. Priced at £29.99, to reserve your copy contact info@pathfinderonline.co.uk quote AJ print
  4. Good evening all. I know I have asked this before....with some answers, BUT our transport company are asking for a more accurate address for the campsite and destination for delivery of vehicles. I know head office said emails would be sent out but with only 8 days left, the transport mob whant to plan their day and route. Gary
  5. UPDATE - exceptional meeting tonight with the movers and shakers of Dorchester - the heavy weights. Phil Gordon - Dorchester BID. Gerald Duke - Duke Actioneers. Inspector Les Fry - the boss of the police in Dorchester and a well know retailer of Dorchester. Without doubt A&E 2012 is going to be the event of the year and is going to blow you away (not going to give to much away at the moment). Guys - this is going to be incredible and it is all coming together and you will never of been to an event like it. - just get your vehicles ready.
  6. Having posted several wanted ads on various sites I now have a guy aledgedly in the USA offering me exactly the parts I need for $600. He has cut and pasted bits of my ads from this site and Milweb to provide an aparently plausable spiel. I know that some of us are desperate for parts but we can avoid this if we are careful. If it wasn't for a spelling mistake I made in an ad which then appeared as confirmation in answer to a detailed question then I probably would have gone for it.
  7. In the HMVF staff room the other day we were all taking about where the HMVF team should go on holiday again this year. Then someone said "well where ever we go - we aren't taking N.O.S. and Degsy again. N.O.S. would never take his coat and cap off and Degsy just sat about all day....."
  8. Hi folks, We are 10,000 programs printed for A&E 2012 which will be going into all the local shops, being handed out at the carnival the week before and throughout the whole weekend. We are getting good coverage for the event from the national press, The Times. Telegraph, Daily Mail and Express to name just a few. We are also have coverage from the TV too - so a lot going on. If you would like to advertise your business with us which also includes you link on the A&E website for two years then please just let me know. The site is getting big traffic and that is only going grow. Best wishes, Jack.
  9. Folks - I have been asked for to lay on a bash on the Saturday evening of A&£ 2012 - a 40's dance. The Corn Exchange here in Dorchester used to hold 40's dances for the 'Yanks' - before I pull the trigger on this - is this something that would be of interest to you?

  22. I know this was touched on in the Normandy thread but though it was worth posting again for those that missed it... Information recently forwarded to me:
  23. Folks - just wanted to share with you the official A&E PR...

For the first time since the end of the war, classic military vehicles will come together and form a convoy which will then drive through the streets of Dorchester for an unmissable and unforgettable event. WWII re-enactors and vehicle owners from around Europe will don original uniforms, carry weapons and equipment that would have been taken on embarkation to give spectators a real taste of history and breathe new life into the story behind the preparation for one of Britain’s most important battles. 50 plus historic WWII vehicles including up to 20 original tanks will travel in convoy along the very roads that were packed with apprehensive troops and vehicles destined for France 68 years earlier. Dorset was chosen for its significance as one of the major marshalling areas and embarkation counties during the build up to, and execution of, D-Day and the liberation of Nazi-occupied Europe. Jack Beckett, organiser and founder of Armour and Embarkation said, “Every possible area – from town centres to woodland would have been filled with a myriad of armour and vehicles from the allied expeditionary force, the likes of which have never been seen since. Until now.” “With the help of re-enactors and military vehicle enthusiasts the Armour & Embarkation event aims to demonstrate the true scale of the operation behind one of this country’s most important events in modern history.” The group will also be participating in the Veteran’s Weekend on Sunday 24th June by continuing their journey to Weymouth and taking part in the activities.
