    Got a good feeling about this when i arrived bit sceptcle at first with Ken not doing it but a great weekend, lot's public and interest, good company, good venue, good company. Couldn't do pyro as lawn taken up but kids drill went down well must have put 50 kids through their paces. Shame Dickie Lines wasn't too well, was going to do magic trick again.

    Certainly was a great weekend. Public really enjoyed our appearance on the gate and the staff and organisers were impressed with the help we gave with car park and admissions. Shame the bus broke down for tour of the reservoir!!

    yep a great event, but it was a shame about the battle! i had 1 round left up the spout, & was just about to do my famous oscar winning death or glory charge, to a spectacular death from a full mag of mp40 rounds, when it finished. good fun tho & i felt sorry for tiny. at least i got more than a single round off
