  1. Never knew it was on and we just stumbled across it today. Fantastic atmosphere and lots of stalls with old weapons on etc. old army vehicles and the like. Nice to see the old guys in their smart blazers with the badges on and some of our lads and lasses who are serving in the forces at the moment. This is what being British is all about. We are all proud to think of what our forefathers sacrificed and went through to keep our freedom. We should never forget what has gone before us and remember it all with pride.
