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).
I have no idea what this next thing really is, (but had a guess)
The Resistance were here too
they were cooking lunch….
More evidence of the USA contingent
and we found some!
I think that’ll do for today, but stay tooned for more WW2 next time.
