As some of you may be aware, I went to the UK for a week. Attended the War and Peace show (with over 3.000 vehicles, lots of reenactors etc.), the Bovington tank museum and London (Imperial War Museum, Hms Belfast, Cabinet Warrooms).

Had great fun. War and Peace show I went to the UK by car, camping there together with Lightning[nl]. At the war and peace show I met three fellow Forgotten Hope mod people: Mr.Cheese (developer), Pvt Allen (tester) and Pig (tester).

Had much fun talking to people including a British veteran who served in North Africa. He told us some stories about his job (supplying Long Range Desert Group men with stuff by the truck he drove). Also spoke with a reenactor about the Italians in WW2 etc. All very interesting.

Here are some photo's:

Go to some American reenactment event, go nuts on a shootingrange or something. =p

Actually I look like I have been through a rain shower and walking through the mud...

And camping is fun and cheap (not if it rains though and you need to cook dinner...).

He's older I think (17?) and they are sneaky (but nice) bastards like that. =p

Whats with the jacket and longpants? I thought gBrittain was the global warming capital of the world! Also, Donut, shame on you for not giving us the obligitory "straddling a bomb" shot I was hoping for. We should put that on a B-17 or something.
