NEW THIS MONTH – MAY 2012
Well the season rolls on and so does the rain and wet weather !!! We wanted to go to the Catton Halll Show Near Lichfield but it was rained off !!!  Last we went along and supported a new event being held at Halfpenny Green Airfield called surprisingly Halpenny ar War. There’s a separate report soon appearing on Miliblog with load of photos, but there’s a few photos below to whet your appetite. This must have been the only weekend in May that we had dry weather and everyone was glad to be out enjoying themselves.

Hillman Minx 10hp Light Utility (TRT 679)

This was a superb Spitfire MkIX which I’m pretty sure was a replica, but even so it was absolutely fantastic

So with shows being cancelled, we’ve again this month turned toadding to our modern British Army TRFs and I’ve added some samples below. Again have a look in our badges section for a more of them.

21 Engineer Regt (LAD)

19 Mechanised Brigade (Desert)

So as we come upto the anniversary of the D-Day landings on June 6, lets’ get out there to some dry shows !

Cheerio !!!
