I just felt that I should post somewhat of an "After-Action" report of the week-long event I recently attended here in England. It was the War & Peace Show, the World's largest military re-enactment and trade fair, and the weather was, at the beginning of the week very pleasant. However it turned towards the end, and the fields all became a muddy mess, as is shown in the images below.
Anyway, here are the pictures from the show (taken from the War & Peace Show website: http://thewarandpeaceshow.com/):

The event was excellent, despite the weather and I know that some of the forum members on here also managed to find some bargains at the fair too!
Thanks, and hope to see some of you again next year!
