hi,

about time I introduced myself after lurking on here a while.

 

im dan from Milton Keynes,always been interested in military especially ww2.im part of a living history group called "poor bloody infantry".

 

Ive always wanted a military vehicle from the ww2 period motorbike to a tank.but with young kids I find my budget doesn't stretch that far yet. whats the cheapest way to start in ownership? wouldn't mind a royal enfield flying flea or matchless g3l to start the ball rolling

 

well that's a bit about me

Hello Dan, also from MK. Good to see another local on here. I started off with a Landrover, sold it, Landy ambulance, sold it. Bought a knackered 1944 Morris, sold that, then a Ferret eventually ending up to be able to afford a 44 GPW. Took a while......

well hopefully the saving will go to plan as long as the wife and kids don't get in my way ha ha.

 

hopefully get a brit truck or jeep.a bren carrier would be amazing but till my lotto ticket comes up ill have to dream till then.

 

might start with a motorbike to start.

I have been mk museum the last couple of years,nice friendly event. don't think I can make this years show as it clashes with the victory show I believe.
