Over the weekend I had a chance to visit a small living history event that I haven't been to before. Held in the grounds of Cressing Temple Barns near Witham in Essex, the show is only in its second year but it is quickly establishing itself as a first rate event featuring first and second World War living history displays, music, vehicles and even a small battle reenactment. The weather stayed clear and Sunday was especially fine so the wife and I took the young Padawan to to the show and met up with some of the extended family for a very pleasant day out.

|A fine collection of Bren Guns|

Not a bad little show albeit a little smaller than the sort we normally visit.
That's a 6 Pdr AT gun not a 17 Pdr.ReplyDelete

Looks like great day out.ReplyDelete
I've noticed over the last couple of years that these re-enactor days are becoming more frequent and better presented.
It could be that very soon we see WW2 tanks as well as people!
Maybe even the odd WW2 aircraft!
