  7. Hi I amwondering if there is any WW11 vehicle owners who would be interested inbringing their pride and joy to a Photo Shoot being arranged at Fort Borstalnear Rochester in Kent on the Sunday the 21 February 2016 from 12.00 till 18.00. A link toFort Borstal and its history is below. http://www.fortborstal.co.uk/ The Fort ison private land and not accessible to the general public. The photoshoot is being arranged by friends of mine Carrie and Daniel Hoey (CDHEvents) the main theme is to be WW11, with additional sets being planned. There will be Models in dress in keeping with themes etc. Also if there are a few re enactors willing to attend they will be most welcome also. Many photographers both professional and keen armatures (like me) will beattending. Photos of any vehicles or re enactors, attendingwith or without Models etc will be sent free of charge to owners by thephotographers. As this is an ancient historic monument and not open to the public sothis is a great opportunity to see Fort Borstal. Please PM me if interested.
