On Saturday the Family & I took a short drive over to Rainham for the Military & Flying Machines event at Damyns Hall Aerodrome. We try to do this show every year because it attracts a variety of re-enactors, vehicles and traders and includes plenty of family oriented stuff like bouncy castles and rides. This means that the wife can keep the little one happy while I get to wander around camera in hand.
I was trying to be a little more restrained with my picture taking (especially after my excesses of last week) and managed to keep my photo's in the hundreds rather than thousands for a change! Here are some of my pictures from the event.
|M4 Sherman with Cullen Hedgerow Cutters attached to front|
|Scammell Recovery Vehicle|
|M10 Achilles - A British variant of the American M10 Tank destroyer with the 17 pounder anti-tank gun instead of the the standard 3" (76.2 mm) Gun M7|
|Infantryman from Das Heer re-enactment group|
|White M16 Half Track|
|Re-enactors - US Infantry|
|Ferret Scout Car|
|Greyhound Armoured Car|
|Spitfire Mk LFIXe from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight|

Although this show is nothing like as large or well attended as the likes of War & Peace its still a pretty good show with an interesting and growing variety of re-enactors and vehicles on display.
