War and Peace show 2012

This was the last year the show branded as the largest of it’s kind was hosted at the Hop Farm in Kent as from 2013 it moved home. Militaria from all over the world was represented from modern day through history but there was an undeniable WW2 bias. Probably the only place you can see Sgt Oddball (imdb – Kelly’s Heros) still charging around in a tank – not least because Donald Sutherland is far to sensible for that sort of thing now.

A great day not least because I resisted buying a Stolly that was for sale… no diffs, can’t use it on the road but can swim. Given the weather this week perhaps I should have bought it!
