Battlegroup North Show - Elvington Air Museum 2012

Chalk attended the annual Battlegroup North Show (formerly Wings and Wheels) again this year, and the weather was HOT! Braving the almost unbearable heat without shade, four of us manned the display showing items pertaining to the GPR and also our ever popular German weapons, mines and explosives section.

Although the public visitor numbers felt to be lower than last year (we put this down to our new trial location and the heat) we were still rushed off our feet at points throughout the day as two of us also took part in some training exercises on the two 25 Pdr field guns which were also at the show. All in all it was a good event and we had chance to blow the dust of some kit which hadn't been on display since the end of last season along with meeting up with old friends and making some new ones.

Here's just a few photo's of the display for those of you that couldn't make it. Matt

Our next event will be at Duxford IWM for their Airborne Forces weekend in June, check our events list for details.
