OK....I look forward to it. Might you all be aboard the Tilly? It's very close to the Euro-Tunnel terminal so there won't be much driving for Jean to do!

Hi Johan....but of course! Will Gert and Chris (sp? :blush: ) be coming with you? As it's a new venue it's difficult to say "Outside **** at midday" because we don't yet know where things will be yet! We'll have to think of a suitable landmark and liaise nearer the time.

 

Hi

 

Mmmm could be a bit of problem, but surely lets keep it simple and still meet outside Soilder of extreme mega fortune.... Everyone should be able to find them, and i suspect they will be given a prime location.

 

Regards

Don't forget to visit "the greatest Grenada display on earth" while you are there!

Ironically, now that it's moved to the south coast, it's closer to you guys in Belgium than it is to me living in the west of the UK! :o I booked accommodation for the weekend in one of the hotels which serves the Channel Tunnel months ago. In the "old days" I used to camp out in the field, but now I prefer my creature comforts (plus the fact that Mrs Sabrejet will be with me too!) ;)

From the wps website:

 

"Further to two incidents in January 2012, that closed Dover and Ramsgate Ports in Kent for several hours, please read the following sent to us for publication from HM Revenue and Customs.

 

It is strongly advised that you DO NOT import any militaria consisting of grenades, mortar bombs, shells, mines, fuzes and rockets even if you believe them to be inert and totally free of explosive or residue.

 

This is because there is no recognised standard in the UK whereby such items can be definitively classified as inert and thus do not represent an explosive risk..."

 

Do you think I should leave the empty M72 launchers I need for my display at home?

Best to err on the side of caution!

Let me give you an example of how "hot" the UK security people are (thanks to "peaceful" Islam!) I bought an M1 helmet on eBayUK a couple of years ago. It was slow in getting to me. The reason was that it had been pulled by the PO's security people. Seems their explosives/drugs sniffer dog had been attracted to the box. The seller had worn the helmet for re-enacting and had fired blanks. There was powder residue on the net and scrim which the dog had detected!! It was returned to the seller to re-pack /seal it. I suppose we ought to be glad that they're so on the ball....after all, they're protecting us against terrorism.

I just checked their website. The give the show dates and general details but no pitch number. That said, they usually have the biggest marquee so they shouldn't be too difficult to find!

All I know for now is that I will have a spot on Haig's Field (Vehicle Display and Camping), next to the Quiet Camping.

They gave me a vehicle number, but no pitch number...

 

This is the map http://gallery.mailchimp.com/094e77000b92896fd76f77eb1/files/Site_Map_A3_compressed.pdf

 

We will get there the day after tomorrow and stay till the very last day of the show.

 

If we do not meet before the RV, I will make sure to be at the SOF tent at 1200 on Saturday.

You'll need to wear a pink carnation and carry a rolled newspaper so we can recognize you. ;)

Hi

 

SOF are plot no's - A136-143

 

Here is a link to a stall holders map.

 

http://www.thewarandpeacerevival.co.uk/uploads/images/Stall%20Map%20A3%20(compressed).jpg

 

 

Looking at the map i would say that it is a prime meet and greet location.

 

I think i may be up there over the weekend setting up some tents, so i will keep in all in the loop.

 

Regards

WELL! After getting here last Thursday and working solid ever since, I can happily report that the first public day today went very well without any major problems! The new show venue is excellent and has a great feel to the event.

 

There have been complaints about toilets - but they were all working perfectly and spotless when they were opened - they are just used by animals..........
