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.Β  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. πŸ˜€

  2. It looks like a sextant to me, but I am no sailor, nor an explorer!
    Great shots, though some of those ‘soldiers’ have been eating too many rations. πŸ™‚

  4. Awesome post, Fraggle. How bizarre the addiction of WWII is to the minds of today! Surviving an event so awful–what a tattoo on the hearts and mind.

    1. Thanks Cindy. I’m currently travelling through Europe doing lots of WWII museums and the odd Roman one, and I think it’s not so much of an addiction as part of European psyche.
