Went last year as 2nd Armoured, it was a cracking show and the living history field is pretty good. Battle was good...lots of big pyro....plenty of armour. Some nice war birds landing and taking off from a grass strip...not an airfield !!!

I was in the battle with the HT's. don't know who organises it but they were pretty strict on uniform.

My HT was low loaded and I drove up by car. I'll probably do the same again.

Cheers

Ian.

I remember the good old days 2005/6 when we used to drive up with a convoy of trucks and the Halftrack (towing the Bofors), we used to put on good displays with just 8 of us there, filled 700 sandbags one year and used to fire at the Messerschmitt flying about, the show was new then (N44 used to go but no 2nd Armoured as far as I remember) and they used pay us a donation for fuel but now its bigger I guess the 2nd Armoured get the fuel cash now to low load your Halftrack up there Ian. Always had good battles up there as they have the space to do it.

We been a few times but never with the truck, would sure give it a look if you going in convoy as its not long after Odessey.

Think it was Paul Dalby organised the battles & they have been impressive.

Not sure about the Clubmobile yet Paul, I need to fix the brakes but may still take it up there on the flat bed truck (if I get it in time).

I know a few of the trucks are going up but not sure that the (2nd Armoured) Halftracks are going to make it, Gordon's has gearbox truble and Ian's has no brakes.
