  1. Here are my photos from today’s event - nice weather, nice people and nice vehicles plus decent catering - looking forward to next year ! Iain
  2. Just got back from a few days up in the Yorkshire Dales visiting the in laws and having a wander round the hills. First day there just happened to co-inside with the forties weekend at Grassington. Excellent little show, the whole village gets into the spirit of it, dressing up the shops and themselves. Camera got a thorough work out. Mostly American stuff, never seen so many jeeps in one place!! Couple of tidy British wagons, and a very nice BMW bike and side car for the other side Highlight of the day was hearing an unmistakable noise, and everybody rushing outside to see this
  3. Replacement for the much missed DLI Museum event, not many vehicles, but very friendly atnosphere, and the locals tended to ask inteligent questions rather than stupid/silly ones!! Enjoy Mark
  4. I've just been on a tour of the USN patrol boat P22 at Southampton Boat Show: http://www.p22.org.uk/ She's apparently in the Dunkirk film pretending to be an RN admiral's barge: They like doing reenactment and would be grateful to make contact with anyone in the Sandwich area of Kent with suitable vehicles/uniforms etc. Andy
  5. As the title suggests, show is mainly steam traction and farmers on tractors, but the classic commercial vehicle section is a reasonable turn out and the MV section grows every year. Camera doing overtime. Bedford Jeeps Bedford Another Bedford Richard Farrants' Bedford Hillman?? Dodge Chevy? Scammell Morris Searchlight. This was being used on Saturday night. The beam is incredible Lamp is mounted on the back of this. TSM on the radiator, is that Tilling Stevens? American something? 432 Saracen And a couple of Ex greens. Dark red appears to be popular
  6. For this year the North Oxfordshire and Cotswolds Area of the MVT had their annual road run to Springhill Lodge camp which is I understand an ex POW camp and then ex DP camp, followed by a visit to Northwick Park which is an ex military hospital and DP camp. Both sites were quite remarkable to see and in varying states of preservation We had about 20 vehicles on the run this year which was far easier to manage than the normal 40 to 50. The weather was great, but the heavens opened when we arrived at our lunch stop and it stopped just as we got ready to leave. The Lord moves in mysterious ways. It was a great day out. Here are some photos in no particular order. One of the DPs refused resettlement and still lived here until 1985
  7. War and Peace 2017

    For those that couldn't make it I thought I would start a new thread of what caught my eye there: I will add to this as I upload the photos.
  8. Many thanks to Stu, his team, and all those who brought vehicles, weaponry, kit etc. An innovation this year was 'tank rides' - in a Scorpion and an APC. It was a splendid weekend; the weather was great too. (The dust raised by the vehicles was not so great...) A few photos here of British and Soviet armour. John.
  9. Dear All I had a pleasant afternoon at this year's show a mile or so from my home - I think a few less vehicles than last time I was able to attend, but still well worth it. I do wish the event had more publicity - it takes place on the 1st May Bank Holiday Monday every year at the Mid Suffolk Light Railway at Wethringsett Station. The event features the steam railway (of course), lots of people who make the effort to dress in correct 1940s fashions beside the military re-enactors, vehicles and displays of US and UK equipment including practical demonstrations Photos follow .. Iain
  10. Watched the 4 episodes of this on Netlfix, set in Latvia , 4 amateurs excavate German and Soviet battlefield sites from the front that eventually resulted in the Kurland pocket. It's not really archeology in the true sense of the word, However I learned a lot about that part of the war I didn't know, especially in episode 4, ( and maybe a lot of people didn't know ) About the killing of German settlers in reprisal attacks. however, this scathing article and it's criticisms are also true. http://thepipeline.info/blog/2016/01/10/review-battlefield-recovery-clearstory-productions-for-channel-5/ Anyone else see this, what do you think or feel about the show?
  11. Some pictures from Saturday
  12. Hi All Well our 29th Summer Rally in Weare, New Hampshire, USA is now in the books with a very good turn out for the week. We never got all the MVs to stand still during the 3 days of the show so a total definitive vehicle count is hard at one point in time we had 118 Military Vehicles on the field in one 18 minute period. But with trail and road rides taking 10-20 vehicles at a time some people have estimated that the total count was 150+/-. Show had more of an international feel this year with FOUR CMPs attending the show, with Bob C. bringing his Pattern 11 C15A down to the show. This year the number of LARGE US military trucks was up with one group arriving in convoy Something went wrong... That fails to load try Photo below will give you and idea of the show. For more photos and some links to videos visit the MVMVC web site photo page http://mvmvc.org/photos/ Cheers Phil
  13. Popped along to this small show today as I'd never heard of it until this morning. Nice setting of an old furnace next to a canal & surrounded by woodland. Plenty of smart steam & traction engines, tractors, cars & a few MVs as below. My take the Militant along next year.
  14. Morning folks, not a military event, but there was a small selection of ex Military there, I took my Dodge Ram, sporting the temporary roll bar and non working light bar. Enjoy Mark
  15. I was lucky enough to be invite to assist the Cold War Collection and their 3 vehicles that were being used as part of the attractions on the ground. The collection has 15 vehicle currently and I was involved with brokering the V100 deal recently. The CVR(T) Scorpion is ex Belgian and the Pinzgauer ex Austrian. The 1969 Cadillac Gage V100 Commando is powered by a petrol V8 engine at the rear and originally fitted with chevron pattern tires that propelled it in water when swimming. The vehicle came to Canada a while ago and was restored by someone along the way. The aircraft shown are different in that they are all privately owned.
  16. Here are a few pictures from the Shuttleworth Collection's 1940's day, I didn't get a chance to take pictures of the flying or dancing but these are some of the vehicles and re-enactors who came along, thanks for all of you who attended Steve
  17. We attended as a family yesterday, for the second time, and thoroughly enjoyed it. A short video for now, then images later this afternoon.
  18. A video tour for now, will post images & text tomorrow. now with better video link below
  19. OK, I can work out that after the first decade of it's life it basically just got freighted back and forth between Canada and the UK for upgrades and parking. I guess what I wonder about is what it might have done in those first formative years before the MCT upgrade. Anything jump out at folks that I should look into?

  20. It is again time for the annual HMKF event at Trandum. Theme for this year was overseas operations such as the Normash at Korea. MASH you all know from the TV series and NOR from Norway. This was the contribution to the UN forces in Korea, hospital and crew. Also several vehicles from the Wehrmacht factory and Wehrmacht re-enactors. To top it all a lot of Marshall Aid Equipment. Normash: Marty
  21. Great event last weekend, annual 2 day Forties Festival in Colwyn Bay culminating in a battle reenactment in Eirias Park on Sunday afternoon. To see over 100 photographs and several videos just enter Colwyn Bay Forties Festival into your search engine which will bring up the faceache page (no need to be a member) and click on appropriate links, especially TVConwy who filmed the battle from my Weasel.
  22. Yorkshire MVT held its annual 'Crank Up' event last Sunday. Few pics on my Blog: http://vultureswargamingblog.blogspot.co.uk/2016/04/yorkshire-military-vehcile-trust-2016.html
  23. So, Many of us in the local MV community have been struggling to find an appropriate place to display our vehicles at this time of the year. Many of the Legion events no longer have walking parades with vehicles behind as the Veterans do not walk any more. Locally I discovered that the sister island to the one I live on in the St Lawrence holds an open air service and laying of wreaths at the Township Offices and War memorial. As I farm and the fall (autumn) harvest occurs at this time it was a grey issue if I could attend anyway. I had rattled a few peoples cages and tried to convince others to go regardless of the weather but they are all volunteers and this means taking a day off work. Three others committed to go and I was able to be free having sent the last of our corn to the elevator on Tuesday the 10th. For me this event would be the last of the year, so I thought. Backing up the timings we had to be at the Kingston Ferry Terminal to catch the 0830 hrs sailing on the Wolfe Islander III. We would be in competition with the grain trucks going onto the island and in the end it was a close thing that we all made the same sailing. First I had to get off our Howe Island to go collect a friend by way of the 3 car Township cable Ferry Robin
  24. Went on sunday with my new toy, not many people about, shame really as it is a nice railway and the seperate mining museum is good too. Enjoy the piccys... Mark
