well now theres a conundrum, only wwII vehicles but Hotchkiss post war jeeps are ok, that does not seem fair, as most of the veterans of the time are no longer with us we are surely showing our respect for them, so it would not matter what vehicle was used, I can see the point of military vehicles only but cannot see the point in an age restriction, do we not respect all of our forces even those currently serving, this is not a criticism just my thoughts, alan

this is opening a can of worms , there are events in the Netherlands for all era veterans , with up till now vehicles allowed , but Market Garden is about remembering September 1944 . M201 Hotchkiss discussion is another one , but what about Phillipine bodied jeeps and chassis which are replaced ?  GMC`s with post war made Bodies from Germany … so a difficult discussion , but they want vehicles which look correct for  1944
