PostPosted: Sat Jul 14, 2012 17:19 pm 
So Kelmarsh 2012 was a literal washout and therefore cancelled as a public show. But that didn’t the Guys from GI44-45 and our friends from other groups enjoying the respite from the rain when the sun came out..

Farmer , Glen Mallen discusses options with those present
Image

“Got a penny?” 1st Div LHA set up a movie theatre
Image

Mark Almond, showing off , "At the fronts" new line in repro equipment from the Engineers department
Image

Corporal Murphy states he’s no Black sheep and he enjoys a cup of English tea.
Image

“They’ve pulled the plug - so now I’m gonna pull the plug! ” Corporal Murphy looks for a way to let the flood waters subside.
Image

FAAA take some shelter in the nearby woods.
Image

“We’ve got to set down all this tentage??”
Image

“Hats off to you” as the sun comes out the GI44-45 boys ditch the helmets in favor of their Garrison caps.
Image

Corporal Murphy points out Captain Mallens' Knee jerk reaction , when we asked if it was all in order to remove our woollen shirts, it being so hot and all.
Image

“Gor Blimey Guvna” Captain Mallen impresses his squad with an impression of a London Cockney..
Image

Pvt Bond didn’t realise it was deeper than he thought
Image

Whilst others spot his mistake and take the long way around.
Image

No white feather for Corporal Murphy, he’s no coward. Although he’s not sure what a pink feather means. But at least it cheers up his squad.
Image

“I was Hitler’s double”. Little did the squad know that Pvt Darren Bond was an excellent Hitler impersonator
Image

Private Matt Price demonstrates to Pvt Darren Bond (right) how to walk in mud and avoid deep puddles
Image

“Can you confirm our reservation at the Holiday Inn has been accepted?” asks a worried Corporal Murphy
Image


“Not hasn’t”, says Farmer Mallen
Image

……….smiling!!
Image

Enjoyed the time we were there, thanks to all those that made the effort to come along, improvise, adapt and overcome!!

Paul,

Pleasure to see you and the guys and thank you for making us smile with those piccies, such a shame for all but look at the smile on Glen's face, it was just like a version of 'I'm a re-enactor get me out of here' :lol:

Hope everyone got off site ok and I feel sorry for all regarding the level of effort all round, hope nobody has lost any kit etc.

Cheers Dave

Cheers Dave,

I've never seen Glen out of OD as best I can recall, it cheered me up to no end just to see him wearing those MilSpec wellies!

we literally had a river side property by the tributary formed by the overflowed river! :shock: :lol:
we turned up at 1 A.M. got the tent up at and to bed at 3 A.M. I had joked about digging a ditch for drainage around the tent and joked about making a moat, one of the stewards buggy quad bikes horns were going off because the water had got to the electrics our group leader went out to see what was going on, and to go to the toilet, and came back simply saying "erm...guys....we have a moat." :lol: . luckily we were on a little high ground but had to bail out the neighbors.
