Default Next Year

18 mouths ago I took 6 Ferret armoured cars into Hyde Park, London and performed a dance routine for the Queens Jubilee.
This weekend I am taking 4 Ferrets into Earls Court, London to take part in this years British Military Tournament (Formally the Royal Tournament)

I was thinking ahead to next year, (The 70th Anniversary of the D Day landings) If I can persuade the powers that bee whilst I am there.
Who would be interested in doing something with 4 or 6 carriers ?

Just an idea at the moment, But now is the time to plant the seed.

There's a thread on HMVF mate for carriers at the War & Peace show next year, . Think there's something on here too. Maybe combine the two. Think there's about 8 up to now for W&P.
Be great to see, . Just like the old military display movie reels showing carriers in dance formation. Go for it mate.
Post it on HMVF site too.

Cool Bmt

OK

Today we had 7 dancing Scorpions / CVRT's
4 ferrets doing a display with the White Helmets.
Even a 150ft long U Boat.

Surely we can do something with 4/6 carriers next year.
I have planted the bate in the production office and I am waiting for them to bit.

I will post more later.

The Royal Tournament is well and truely back !!!!

I took part in it in about 1985 as a young squadie. The main thing that stands out in my mind form it was the smell of horse crap etc .
