Malvern Military Convention (UK) Sunday, Nov 17th.


Recommended Posts

Just a heads-up for the UK members that the annual Malvern militaria event is being held next weekend at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern, Worcestershire. Always a good day out in a lovely part of the UK, especially in the autumn!

Hi

 

I shall be there with Class 2 as usual, for our twice yearly visit to the Malvern Hills.

 

I just hope it is a bit warmer than the last one...

 

Regards

If you like fake TR junk and overpriced "coffee" it's perfect :blink:

 

Seriously there are sometimes gems to be found, but from what I've seen on here it's nothing compared to the U.S. shows.

 

Ian, what time are you aiming to arrive? I'm leaving home at 5 am, hope to make Malvern by 09.30 and I'm staying the night before driving home Monday.

Leaving here around 0830ish...there for 1000hrs, or thereabouts? I'll be wearing a red carnation and carrying a rolled copy of The Times as recognition aids! ;)

Carl...don't you know it's an offence to wear a loud shirt in a built-up area!? No...it's strictly "military" tomorrow. All my hula-shirts have been washed, pressed and put away until next summer! ;)

Good show yesterday chaps...Didn't pick much up (though finalized some deals with good friends) but some nice assorted 'smalls'. Always enjoyable to see folks before hunkering down for winter...Ian, it was a nice surprise bumping into you!

 

See y'all at Stoneleigh in January!

Hi

 

Was good to catch up with lot's of people yesterday, including fellow forum memebers.

 

The show although very busy, was pretty average for trade.

 

I actually managed to come home without spending anything...

 

I agree with Will, Roll on Stoneleigh...

 

 

Regards
