What a great weekend this was! Just one shower, hundreds of vehicles, some of them rare, thousands of visitors . . .  and no show- related incidents.
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight sent a Lancaster on Saturday and a Spitfire on Sunday to thrill the crowds. We had various media attending, including TV crews and The Sun.
The silver rose bowl for Best in Show was awarded to Philip Smith's immaculate White M3 Half Track, which he drove to the show from neighbouring Bedfordshire.
Area treasurer and show co-organiser Peter Hamblin, who has now emigrated to Somerset, was surprised during the Saturday night 1940s dance with a presentation of an MP's night stick and four star general's helmet!

Impressive bangs and smoke in the arena.



Free tea, coffee and biscuits were available to all MVT members through- out the show




The mounted First World War re-enact- ment group, the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (FANY), were one of the highlights of the show






This FANY horse- drawn ambul- ance stated life as a bread van. It's more than 100 years old


Radio controlled models were stunning

If only we could get a real Tiger...





Why? Because it can...


















Our arena security patrol was not to be messed with!






A victim of friendly fire?
