    Default RRPG display War and Peace show 2011

    Today was the first day of the 2011 War and Peace show (UK) and is also the first public display put on by the Relic Retrieval and Preservation Group that was formed through WRF Battlefield relics section.
    Being the first day of the show is always quieter building up day by day through to the weekend. Even though it was a relatively quiet day the display had a constant stream of enthusiastic visitors of all ages who seemed very interested in the finds, wanting to discuss them and also sharing information. Quite a few were incredulous that so much could still be dug up with one disbelieving that German 20mil mags could be recovered in the UK.

    After seeing the pictures you'll agree it looks very professional thanks to the hard work of Steve T, Whitehunter and Dangermouse.

    Onto the pics....

    The first shows the whole display with a nice gazebo supplied by Dangermouse.

    and a rather interesting picture of the 'find your own relic' section, I suppose the slogan could be waiting for punters? thats WH at the back looking for relics?

    This W & P show is looking to be yet another world class show and I'll definately be returning on Saturday. Whilst there I also saw 381stdigger and Spotter and we spent an hour or so wandering around trying to find Paul B's pitch to no avail but hopefully on Sat we'll run into him.
    Finally for reference, if you're going to the show the display is in the Living history field to the side of the military modeling tent.

    Cheers

    VERY NICE! Good to see people sharing their relics and educating people on important historical events. We need more people out there to educate individuals on real history, and not the next Lady Gaga concert!

    Thanks for all the positive comments, Im sure the guys will appreciate them. Its a very enjoyable experience for the team, exchanging information with the visitors and hearing their stories and occasionally being tipped off about new sites.
    They will be there on Friday for all that can make it along.
