ReturnToNormandy posted a topic in Future events and meetingsOn Saturday the 30th September 2017 the Spirit of Normandy Trust and Return to Normandy will be holding the Annual Normandy Veterans Reunion at Castle Field Southsea, between 10am and 5pm. It is hoped that up to 100 D-Day and Normandy Veterans will attend with their families, members of the public are also welcome to event. As part of the day we would like to incorporate as many WW2 Themed displays and Stands as possible, especially Vehicles and Re-Enactors. Anyone displaying a vehicle or attending as a re-enactor will be presented with a special commemorative coin and provided lunch, in addition a trophy will be presented for the best vehicle. We would also like to hear from any relevant organisation or persons that would like a stand. Please email email@example.com for more details or send me a PM Mark
I thought I posted a message here yesterday but I can't find it so here is a rough repeat.<br>We are interested in CW and have a good knowledge of the topic as can be seen here <a href="http://www.ryhdymwynvalleyhistory.co.uk/">http://www.ryhdymwynvalleyhistory.co.uk/</a><br>We are currently writing a book on the whole CW industry from 1937 until 1945 when production ceased until its total destruction in 1960 except for small amounts later destroyed at Porton Down including a 20 ton "Museum Sample" of pyro.<br>We are currently looking at gas detector paint which seems to have ranged from use on letter boxes to all military vehicles, including Skuas, Lanacasters, Dakotas, Spitfires, Dakotas, brassards and helmets at D-Day. It seems that most of the brassards and paint used by US troops on D-Day were manufactured vy the UK under Lend/Lease agreements.<br>I know the deep knowledge military vehicle enthusiasts have concerning paint and signs and hope I may be able to help with this.<br>Regards<br>Colin
