43rd Reconnaissance Regiment

MILITARY ODYSSEY


43 Recce

AUGUST 10

Held over the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of August, this multi period living history show is a regular for the Group.  This year the organisers had again put all the British groups together in or near the woods, so we secured a place just off the main roadway and at the start of the track leading into the woods.  Our display consisted of one Dingo, one Morris LRC, one Universal Carrier, one Jeep and one Daimler Armoured Car, so a fair selection of British armour. As usual we entertained those Recce veterans who visited the show.  We also took part in the mock battles on each day, winning some and losing others, but taking the crowd side of the arena to show off the vehicles to the public at close quarters.
