I went to the Festival of History near Coventry UK on Saturday. There were
two Model T ambulances there and a horse drawn cart used for stretcher
cases. By the RFC tent there were a handful of flechettes of different
types, plus an array of flying clothing, and typical kit used by the troops
at that time. For the stronger stomached there was a field hospital with
operating theatre. In the camp was a motorcycle, so I have pictures of that
as well.
ot  I got to see talks by Julian Richards on Stonehenge and Terry Jones on
mediaeval living, the Romans defeating Queen Boudicca, Wellington defeating
Napolean, and St George killing the dragon.

Today I went to the MAVFA nationals at IWM Duxford, and took along my
collection of OT tanks and vehicles. In the American Hall there was a
bookfair, and I bought a copy of Lamberton's Recce and Bomber Aircraft to
add to the collection.
There was also a Rolls-Royce Day happening with hundreds of 'rollers' on
site. I took some photos of the two c. 1914 models, though there was no
evidence they had been used by the military.

Tomorrow I'm going back to work for a rest   :-)
