A total of 18 MVs attended our Crank-up Weekend at John Marchant’s Old Stratford farm on April 26-27, although not all stayed for the whole weekend. Weather was mixed but there were enough bright, dry spells for drivers to exercise their vehicles on the field. An all-day barbecue, quiz, film show and music kept us occupied in the 12x36 tent and on Sunday lay reader Katie Kitchen (ex-Royal Navy) led a short service which included a two minutes’ silence. Vehicles on the field: 1942 Ford of Canada F60S, 1942 Chevrolet HUP, 1945 Ford T16 Carrier, 1958 Dodge M37, 1963 Dodge M37, 1952 Dodge M37, 1944 Ford GPW, 1943 Austin K5, 1998 Blackboard, 1969 Land Rover Lightweight Series 2a, 1993 Land Rover 90, 1943 Bedford MW, 1962 Daimler Ferret Mk 1 / 2, 1956 Daimler Ferret Mk 2, 1966 Bedford RL Minecab, 1995 Honda XR250R,  1942 Willys MB, 1944 Bedford MW.
