Village at War (Saturday)

 

Jo and I took an early walk around the site so we could get some photos before it got crowded, which it did.

This was the Black Market area, with all the stalls selling contraband, and lots of lovely 1930/40’s clothing. I managed to get a new waistcoat, and Jo got her snoods for her hair.

The Americans were well represented with these superb vehicles.

The model tanks are here again, I loved watching rumble around the site last year.

The Home Guard were patrolling the towpath.

Lola Lamour was entertaining the crowds and a few took to the dance floor.

And so was Churchill.

It has gone really well today and we hope it will be even better tomorrow.
