I fancy a bite to eat…
The New Forest played host to a multitude of military activity during World War 2. In the past sixty-odd years much of the vegetation has grown over the scars and structures that were left.
These pictures came from a trip on a cold and grey November day in 2010, the full story can be found here.

SOE is a thriving club based in the Solent area (Southampton/Portsmouth/Petersfield) and beyond that caters for the military collector, their family and friends.
The club organises and runs the prestigious OVERLORD military spectacular, a three day event that attracts over 100 military traders, 500 re-enactors portraying aspects of military life in the 20th century and representing many nations; 350+ vehicles and exhibitors who inform and entertain the public through static displays and exciting arena events. Surplus from the event is used to support local and national charities; past recipients have been organisations such as Rowans Hospice, Help for Heroes, Royal British Legion, Combat Stress and the Ghurka Welfare Trust.

A small, select band braved the dull cold weather in Lee-on-Solent last Saturday, November 13th to visit the Hovercraft Museum on the old Daedalus airfield.
Our briefing was very similar to the one we get at Bordon on a REME visit – “try not to hurt yourselves as you scramble over and inside the exhibits.” And, as far as I know, we didn’t lose anyone to injury.
