David Spelling Just got back from the meeting and can finally let the cat out of the bag.
We have been asked to do the following D-Day related attractions:

Saturday...

Crashed ME109 being robbed by Luftwaffe ground crew for spare parts, a Spitfire pilot above sees the threat and does a straifing run on the 109 and the truck (Mr Hearn I will speak to you later about this) 20mm bullet strikes hitting the ground as the ground crew run for cover. Truck explodes then ME109 explodes. Endex

Stan Hollis VC.
We are going to re-enact the second bunker assault that Stan Hollis of the Green Howards took which finalised the decision to award him the only VC on D-Day.
We are building a Pillbox bunker which will have an MG42 firing. British Infantry have to take this position in order to continue inland, Men being cut down by MG fire, Smoke deployed and Stan rushes the position and using his sten and a grenade overruns the objective.

Sunday

Villers Bocage

Allied troops walk into a German ambush, They call up Armour and start to progress on the German positions, Enter the German panzers who begin to maul the Allied armour, just when the battle looks won, P51 mustang tank busts the German Panzers..
Lots of bangs etc etc.

I have been asked by the organisers to provide some attractions for school parties on the mon, tues, weds as well as obviously building bunkers etc if anyone can help that would be great, please get in contact. I am not sure of money but am hoping at this point I will be able to offer something for your time and effort.

Aircraft flyovers on both days including low level Lancaster, also Daykotas dropping parachutists on both days.

And that's just the WW2....other attractions from all the multi period groups.

Looks like it might be a good one

Dave

From CVHF official site


Red Ball Express
Encampment and displays of vehicles, mobile workshops, crane and other trucks demonstrating the organisation and logistics of supplying Patton’s US Third Army in the field in northwest Europe in 1944/45. – 514th QM Truck Regiment. We are delighted that the Red Ball Express will be at the Festival all week.

By looking at that it looks like a big event for 514
How many vehicles are going .
One of the best events we had last year.

This will be the same as all the other shows, you should all know what kit your be needing, no modern stuff (clothing, tents or kit). Smile
