A bit late with this but better late than never. :oops: I thought this was a great event, had a mix of everything. If you wanted to drive your vehicle you could which made it more interesting than the usuall static displays. Lots of people were in period dress which added to the feel of the event. There was a good mix of British and US military vehicles and plenty of civilian vehicles too. American red cross had a large impressive display. Naafi wagon did great business as usuall and the concerts were great and got a fair crowd joining in. The fire fighting dispalys were well done but the stretcher jeep siren got a bit annoying. All in a great weekend and great weather too. A definate for next year.
