I was playing with Google and “Solent Overlord” and came across a photoset by Mark Rutley on flickr I asked if I could link to it and he kindly agreed, there was also one image of the man that makes OVERLORD such success that I particularly liked and that is reproduced here:

When James Daly gave his talk about his family’s wartime experiences he mentioned that he has just secured a publishing deal for his book about Portsmouth heroes of WW2. If you can help with pictures as described below than please contact me and I will pass the message on:
We hope to see you at Overlord 2013 but, even with our new,enlarged showground, spaces will be limited so apply in plenty of time to ensure we can fit you in.
The last day for applications is Wednesday May 1st
With an idea of numbers we can make sure that our on site facilities – toilets, showers, security, catering and emergency cover are fully sufficient for your needs.
The show is open to the public from Saturday 25th to Monday the 27th, please let us know if you wish to arrive earlier or pack up later.
And a personal plea from the webwright who also moonlights as a show commentator – could you provide full information about your vehicle – you have spent a great deal of time and money on it and no doubt want me to do justice to it. A full description makes it simpler for me to talk knowledgeably about your beast for your two or three laps of glory around the arena !

Tips for a Safe Show
First – if you have any questions or requests ask one of the marshalls; they are the harassed looking people wandering around site in hi-viz vests. Your query can either be answered there and then or they can radio through to the right person to help
No one wants an accident marring their enjoyment or worse, nor do they want to be the cause of an accident. We don’t like complicating things or making a whole host of rules and restrictions; fortunately safety is mostly a matter of plain common sense.
Because there are a lot of vehicles, generators and gas appliances the risk of fire is high, simple precautions will help reduce that risk:
- Keep cans of fuel stored upright well away from naked flame or hot metal
- Switch off generators or vehicle engines before refuelling. Allow gennies to cool down before putting petrol in
- Secure propane cylinders upright to a post or similar and in a well ventilated area at least 2m from the appliance they are connected to
- Do not leave appliances unattended when in use
If you discover a fire only attempt to put it out if there is no risk to you otherwise alert the on-site fire service or one of the marshalls. It is now part of our code of conduct that vehicles and tents contain a fire extinguisher suitable to task
The ONLY type of extinguisher to use on oil and fat fires is the wet chemical type the others are either ineffective or, in the case of a water extinguisher will cause the fire to explode. USE ONLY THE WET CHEMICAL EXTINGUISHER ON OIL OR FAT FIRES or use a fire blanket
