Saturday 23rd - Monday25th August 2008 Operation Foxes Lair Based around the 300 year old pub 'The Fox Inn' we take over the village of Matching Tye and transport it back to the 1940's

We are back to Matching Tye in Essex where the objective is to time-warp the village and Hall back to the 1940,s , with Armour and softskins Vehicles , Living History , and a Saturday night dance in the village hall with 'The Hummingbirds'. A Convoy of Vehicles on the Sunday to an old 9th USAAF Airfield and Easton Lodge.The convoy will travel across the ex 391st Bomb Group, 9th USAAF airfield 'RAF Matching' and along some of the narrowest 'roads' in Essex (some even have moss growing down the centre!!) and with the weather promising to be dry and warm, should make for a great weekend.


Military & Civilian Re-enactors and Period Vehicles most welcome
