Just 5 weeks to go until we commence the move to the showground, eek!
We were very pleased to join members of the IMPS in promoting the DFVS at the North Somerset Show on bank holiday Monday. This, of course, meant we needed to get vehicles ready for the trip up to Flax Bourton.
New arrival ‘Avenger’ towed the 25-pounder and limber, whilst the faithful Bedford OY carried tentage and props. DFVS volunteers handed out tons of flyers, and the gun crew ran through training on the artillery piece and showed members of the public how it operates.
Back in the workshop, some very tasty parts have arrived for the 4.5-inch gun, which has been given a rub down and first coat of primer.
