I will be on site tomorrow about 10am, please look out for directional signs and make sure you book in with me first and I will assign you a camping area.

See you in the field of battle

Dave

Absolutely cracking weekend. Great fun, great company, great food and a Pub! What more is needed.

On behalf of "The Yanks" many thanks to the organisers and other participants for such a sterling weekend.

Thanks Dave for all the effort you put into this event, it paid off, I had a great time even though we were run ragged for a day and half!
It's a great site and an excellent bunch of blokes on both sides, would certainly be up for another

Well what a weekend...
The weather was kind, the terrain has natural sand drainage, we had a pub right next to the site. The landlord loved us and was giving away shots by mid evening. Bambi stew was amazing. The tactical on the Saturday was brilliant, no shot calling and some of the best movement I have seen at one of these battles.
The Allies although outnumbered were fantastic and held off the Axis forces with vigour. Everyone left the site a happy man.
Now I must thank the following for their assistance with making this a great success.
Tom `Teaboy` Coldridge without him we would not have had the site or the bunker or the bar...
Matthew Holoway who bought his original field kitchen in which Bambi turned into tea for Saturday.
Dave Sayer who commanded the Allies
Manny Trainor who commanded the Axis
Everyone who attended and bought in to my ideas and made the event.
I thank you all......

Dave
