Frontline -Part 5-WW2-June 2018

The main event as far as Phil was concerned was the German armour and uniforms, and he was very impressed with the authenticity of both. The re-enactors covered the German, British,American WW2 and included some French resistance people too.  Lots of renovated vehicles were also on show, and at the end of the day they had a full on battle which was fun to watch.

Previously mostly used for rail, industrial or agricultural hopper cars, the Kubelwagon was a light military vehicle designed by Ferdinand Porsche and built by Volkswagen during World War II for use by the German military (both Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS).

  1. Hi Fraggle! This post is even more fun than the last one! You must have had a terrific time. I got a kick out of “steam punk flux capacitor”. I’m no expert, but I think it’s a sundial compass or an astrolabe… I like flux capacitor better though. 😀
