A Military Odyssey @ Detling 2005

I sometimes wonder if school history projects are set to test the knowledge of the student or the initiative of the parents?


Military History Show - Aug2005 - 21

Anyway, with a Second World War history project to complete in the next week, I took my daughter Charlotte, along to the 2005 Military Odyssey at Detling today and all her photos can be found here. It's pretty good value if you happen to be interested in history or simply fancy buying an army surplus tank or an SS officer's uniform to surprise your wife with when you get back home.



Mind you, with the A299 closed both ways this afternoon at Hoath/Reculver, you might need one. Absolute chaos ensued as our young Kent policemen, lost for any sign of initiative, directed the traffic off towards the villages between here and Canterbury, on roads which weren't large enough to accommodate two way traffic, caravans and trucks. Another big smash happened in Hoath as a result and I had to work my way very slowly towards Sturry and home. At least I had a vague idea of where I was going. God help everyone else jammed up in the country lanes between here and Herne Bay they may still be there now.
