We have touched down at the North Somerset Showground! The mammoth logistical task of getting all the vehicles, sets, infrastructure and volunteers is well under way.
The two defenders were part of a huge group of vehicles shuttling back and forth to get the gear to site. Here the Anderson Shelter, mower and wings have arrived, followed by the ‘Little Lady’ jeep, and the torpedo, among others.
The large evening convoy prepares to leave HQ
…and arrives at the showground (mostly unscathed!)
Meanwhile the build teams have been constructing parts of Victory Square, and Artillery Corner, as the two huge marquees go up in the background.
More loads arrive!
The poor old Austin K5 had a fuel issue (There wasn’t any) which was soon rectified and it trundled into the showground – better late than never!
One of the last items in our shipment is the Fox Armoured Car, but it’s by no means the last vehicle. The majority of the 200 vehicles are arriving tomorrow!
It’s all coming together!
