Just to let you all know, we are working on this years PIW, things are a bit slow due to campsite issues. I have contacted the Army for a site on the SPTA and I am just waiting for their response.


I would be grateful to know if we still have your continued support for this years event?

We will have full fire, medical and rescue cover this year and we are working on having full convoy comms with the help of Chris and his team of Air Cadets.


All are welcome to this event. The date is going to be the same as last year, 27th & 28th August 2011.

More up-dates as and when I get them.


All the best, hope to see you all soon

Just a quick up-date. Going to meet up with a very nice person on Friday to sort out our camp site. A new location again this year and I think this is going to be a real treat. Not going to say to much about the location, but everyone that came last year might remember the visit we did, well it is there. We have already talked about some very interesting ideas for this event and pos the future for the event and the location. If we get this site, there is no limits to the ideas we can work on. Remember, 30th anniversery of the Falklands war next year, and we all know what they have in that big shed of theres.

Thats it for now, preying for some great news on Friday.......

Just got back from our meeting with a very nice lady indeed. well we have been given a blank canvas guys, we have a massive camping area, a big shed full of lovely old things and full support from there team. I will give the location very soon.

During our meeting we where asked if it was posible to put a public display on for one of the days we where there. Me being me said yes, but for a very good reason. With the rising cost of fuel I think a display on the Saturday would benifit all involved. We will still have our Sunday track bash over Salisbury Plain once once the loose ends are tied up with West Down, and We will still have the fun we always have on this little get together.

So what has our new partners offered us apart from a big camp site and shen full of old aircraft and vehicles? WELL, they have offered us the main hall to display around 10 to 15 vehicles in. your vehicles will be displayed along side part of the current collection spanning WW2 gliders to more resent stuff like Chipmink, Scout helicopter and a huey cobra helicopter. It's down to use to decide what we put in there. Running in the same vain as the shed we have a large outdoor area for more displays. radio Com's set ups, Medical, Armour display. If I can find some re-enactors to join us for a day then that will also be thrown into the mix. Also agreed we can display private collections of small arms, uniforms and alike indoors. Like I say, a blank canvas guys. Now the hard work, getting vehicle owners and groups to get involved with what I hope will turn into a weekend that has been missing from this neck of the woods.

Information will be post on our web page. The web site is almost done and please feel free to ask any questions useing the guest book or just drop me an email.

So thats about it guys, sold myself to the devil and going with a public day.

Many thanks for all the support you guys have given me over the last few years, and long may it continue.

Tony and the PIW team.........
