War & Peace Show 2017

Post by muttguru » Fri Aug 11, 2017 8:41 am

Here is the first batch of photos I took at the War and Peace show at Beltring two weeks ago. The weather was cloudy and on Friday it started to rain.....fortunately the rain eased off and the ground didn't turn into a quagmire. The pictures give a good indication of how dark the sky was at times....but.....the show itself was just like turning the clock back ten years ! More to come soon... Meanwhile....enjoy !

Here's the second batch from War and Peace.

Here's my Dutch friend and mutt-owner George, with his M416 trailer-tent unit. The mutt is powered by LPG...that's the tank under the rear seat.

A couple of photos of military Land Rovers along with other British vehicles....later on I'll post a photo of a huge lineup of Ferrets (for those of you who like that vehicle).

The last couple of photos show a Russian version of the quad bike.....there was a lot of ex-Soviet vehicles at the show.

Oh....and those are WWII US Army rat-traps....for sale. It's hard to believe where these things have been hiding for all these years (the traps....not the rats !)

Enjoy....
Ken

And now here's the third batch of War & Peace photos. Some nice vehicles in this section, including an Otter, which I've never seen before, an M939 5-tonner.
More to come soon...................
Enjoy.....

Yes, here we are again with more pics of War & Peace. Batch-5 of the pictures I took. The photos get a little darker as the sky went even more grey/gray. The show, relocated to its original site at the Hop Farm near Paddock Wood, was usually held at least one week earlier than this one..... That one week early could have made all the difference weather-wise.
More photos coming soon...

Mark..... that's a good question. I.ll ask Stuart Beeney from Rolling Thunder group. I think he is a part-owner of it.

Great pics of the show! I go over for it every year. The group I camp with is the Kellys Heroes Group. What a surprise to see our gate tower and cafe in your pics.
First year back at the Hop Farm. What did you think?
