Was fab to have you along mate! You fitted in really well. :) Looking forward to seeing you at Whittington this weekend!

Some more from the weekend at the Staffordshire Regiment Museum. Was a great time and the museum looked after us well. Even got to dig in. :) Sadly the second trench didn't get as deep as we would have liked when we hit a massive concrete foundation in the centre of the trench. -_-

Public amazement as I cook corn beef hash. 'Are you really going to eat that?' (Actually it was very interesting to see as the people got older the more they said it was gorgeous!)

11km away we dig in. :)

Glad you enjoyed it Dan! Great to have you along and I never take it for granted the effort you gentlemen put into making the great trecks across the country to get to the events we do!

Very pleased with the set-up and like Ieuan says, looking forward to Woodhall Spa this weekend.

Already Got a particular picture I hope to re-stage!! ;)

Matt

Every weekend you have a photo to re-stage. Do you have like a scrapbook with a list or summin? :P

And likewise we appreciate all the effort you put into making sure we all get there Matt. And trecking halfway across the country yourself....with a packed Ford banger! :P hehe.

Good to meet you guys. Great photos as well (even spotted myself in one of them)

Still can't believe you got ALL that stuff into one car.
