War & Peace Show July 18 - 22, 2011, Beltring, Kent, UK.


Recommended Posts

How time flies! In just 26 days "War & Peace 2011" kicks off at its usual venue, the Whitbread Hop Farm, Beltring, Kent, UK. For the uninitiated, this is the world's largest gathering of historic military vehicles, supported by acres of trade stands and living history displays etc. Most of us Brits attend annually, as do a number of our continental European pals. So, how about we check in on the forum and arrange to hook-up at some pre-arranged spot / time? Last year we rendezvous'd at the "Soldier of Fortune" tent as it's an easy landmark to locate (just look for the Welsh flags!) Details are as per the link below. See y'all there?!

Hey Ian,

 

OK, what time on the Saturday?

 

 

Hmmmm :think: Let's see what the general responses are. Midday seems like an easy-to-remember time?

we will be at the show with our biggest Living History display yet (a recreation of the Dak To launch site) so depending on schedule (weekend is busiest) I will make it over for 12.00 on Saturday.

 

And any forum member is welcome in our bar for a beer, we are on the treeline at the back of the living history field, all welcome :D

 

this is the bar in our team room (and we have 2 fridges for beer so always cold)

I'm afraid I can't make it on the weekend, as we'll be there Wednesday and Thursday. Any other members going early in the week? (Tom, will you be with Andy at Class II?)

 

Paul, would love to come down and shoot the breeze with you again this year. Really enjoyed meeting you last year and looking at your most impressive display!

 

See you down there guys

Thanks for the heads-up Tom. I've been monitoring the forecast on the Beeb's website...looks as though we'll see a drop of rain at the weekend. Very un-Beltring like...usually so hot and dry! Last year I could hardly see the armour on the move because of the dust clouds they were kicking up!

 

Ian :crying:

 

PS. Do you think our transAtlantic buddies know what "wellies" are?! :lol:
