    I went and had a brilliant day, took the Mrs and the little one, 2 mates and the mother in law.

    I dressed up in British KD Shorts and shirt, with webbing and anklets, had a U.S side cap with a RA badge (which im sure someone with a keen eye would have spotted lol)

    an absolutely brilliant day, the re-enactment was cool, loving how loud some of the weapons were!

    will post up a few pics if you like?? didnt take many as I was on the go most the time

    It was a great day, weather stayed good. I'll post some pictures when I get a chance (I'm going again tomorrow)

    I saw you Gouldy, the fact that you were the only person in shorts (and the modern boots) gave you away

    A few pictures of today's battle that I've had a quick play with. The battle had a 'fly over' by an Auster and later in the day a Hawker Sea Fury (The Seafire couldn't fly yesterday due to the weather)
