The big Northern Ireland groups like Die Gruppe , Schnell Gruppe Nord and members of the WHLA are attending and this should make a mighty axis show at the event , Likewise a marked increase of Allied groups and members from UK and Northern Ireland are attending and we look forward to seeing all our old friends there .

In regards to duncannon show , we will be having the big Bar BQ on Saturday night but on


Sunday night we have now organised a convoy of all vehicles attending to take all participants over to Wexford to the site of where saving Private Ryan was filmed and there will refreshments and food organised at a local pub there for all.


we did something like this in years past local areas , Germans , Vikings , Romans , British , Medieval etc etc all poured out of triucks , Tanks , Armoured cars etc and converged on a local village for a small tour and it was just fantastic , so this year we have organised a little bit better and should be a great evening out for all


We hope to have a large tuenout of vehicles for the run to the Saving Private Ryan Beach-head.


So far we have ww2 allied and axis vehicles from our own group plus some private owners, also members of I.M.V.G going with a large array of post war to present Military vehicles.


If you are off that weekend and fancy an event with a difference please come over and oin us. you wont be disapointed.


Hope to see ye there
