Battles for Victory Photos 2016


Apologies for posting these so late, it has been rather hectic and trying to get onto the computer when you have a baby running around is impossible!

Well this fantastic show was held in a park. A beautiful setting with a large main stage, vintage vehicles, trade stalls, reenactors and some super eateries. I was also lucky enough to be invited aboard the P22 gunner boat, moored at Ramsgate Harbour. It had just come back from France after being used in the new Brad Pitt war film!

It was wonderful meeting up with some familiar faces and meeting new ones alike. This really is a show that will go from strength to strength as it gets bigger. It is just a shame that there were hardly any posters around, or advertisement for the evening Blitz Ball as Im sure there were some people who missed this that would have loved to come!
