Ponderosa (return to Diary Page)

Second year of attending this event and its growing in size, there was more of everything this year and the re-enactments were excellent lasting close to an hour and supported by large amounts of artillery and armour. This particular re-enactment based on the eastern front included a number of different scenarios cleverly moving across the central bridge area as it was taken and re-taken by opposing forces, the enemy being finally defeated as the armoured column consisting of tanks and half tracks moved in supported by 25 pounder artillery fire. The number of static show vehicles was also up on last year with a large number of rare vehicles on display. If this attendance is repeated next year it will be a must for next year's calendar.
