A couple of weeks ago I was at the Military & Flying Machines Show at Damyns Hall in Essex. I haven't got round to posting my pictures until now so here's a few from what turned out to be a great day.
|Ray was there selling his D-Day Anniversary book accompanied by some of the veterans featured in the book.|
|There was a small selection of vehicles at the show but no heavy armour this year.|
|A Dodge Weapons Carrier alternatively known as a 'Beep'|
|The vehicle was beautifully kitted out with lots of extra equipment, weapons and personal items.|
|Another highlight was this German Field Hospital with a vast amount of kit on display.|
|The only heavy armour on site was this replica Stug.|
|The main highlight was a flyover display by a wartime Dakota.|
|...and very late in the day (probably due to the weather) this Spitfire.|
A very nice day with lots of time spent chatting with the Veterans and exploring the various trade stalls on the site. Not a bad show this year but noticeably smaller than previous years.
Right we are off on holiday for a week. I'll bring my tablet away with me but I can't guarantee that I'll be able to post next week, but I have some militray museums on my hit list (including the Cobbaton Combat Collection) so expect some pictures the following week.
Ray was selling D Day veterans! I must have mis read that!ReplyDelete
Lol. Yes, one free with every book!Delete
Nice pics for inspiration! Thanks.ReplyDelete
Great photos, I especially like the German field hospital.ReplyDelete
But that StuG... so much wrong.
Finally caught up with the blog. Enjoyed the pictures, AAR's and book review. I also took the liberty of linking to you for your new camera as people have been asking me about cameras and photography. I think it is a very good compromise between a compact and a full on DSLR.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you found my review helpful, by all means share the link. All the pictures I shot at this event (and War and Peace a few weeks ago) were taken with my Canon G15 and I'm really pleased with the results.Delete
Looks like it was a great day.ReplyDelete
