Given that 2014 is the centenary of the commencement of WWI its not entirely surprising that there were some special guest vehicles and displays for the public to view. Here's a selection of those that I saw. I'm sure I missed some, but the site is just so huge its impossible to get around it all, even though we attended for two days.
|A Ford Model T Ambulance. This vehicle was built during the inter-war period but some were produced during WWI|
|Where the Poppies Grow|
|Replica of a new Bronze Statue due to be erected in Folkestone, port of embarkation for returning war wounded during WWI.|
|German field kit from WWI|
|A selection of British uniforms and equipment from WWI|
|An effective recruitment poster for the army|
|'Bertie' the Advancing Soldier - a new memorial statue erected at Folkestone Racecourse - formerly RAF Westenhanger - home of the War and Peace Revival Show.|
|N17 is a replica British Mark IV from WWI. Like the Mk IV replica at Bovington this is a runner and is based on a tractor chassis.|
|Ray inside a replica WWI Trench|
|Another wartime recruitment poster|
Understandably there are not that many WWI vehicles at shows like these and many of those seen are replicas. However with the centenary commemorations I am sure we will see more replicas being built and seen at this sort of event.
I'll post some more pictures tomorrow (WWII vehicles I think) and a link to the Web Album where you can see all the photo's I took (if you have the stamina to look through 500!).
