Calling all Exhibitors! It is that time of year again and I would like to formally announce that the applications for OVERLORD D-DAY 75 a.k.a The Overlord Show 2019 are now open! You may be aware that 2019 marks 75 years after D-Day, and it has been decided that we will really push the boat out this year to commemorate this monumental event in history. The team are pleased to announce our most ambitious plans for the main battle, where we hope to simulate the Normandy landings, landing craft and all. While we wish to focus on D-Day this year, we continue to believe that the Overlord Show is dedicated to providing an interesting, exciting, and educational experience of “recent” military history, and is fundamentally multi-era, and we continue to welcome applications from all military vehicles, reenactors or other exhibits regardless of the associated era. As in previous years, the applications for the show will be processed online. Please make an account on our website (If you made an account last year you will NEED to re-register for 2019), and visit the Exhibitors Page. Application forms for each section can be found by clicking the respective buttons on that page! Please visit https://overlordshow.co.uk/exhibitors/ to make an application!

On 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
