34th Edition Of The War And Peace Revival July 19-23

000military54000military5400military5401military5403military2612military261Held in Kent, United Kingdom, it’s the largest and greatest celebration of military vehicles and vintage lifestyle on the planet. Displays and rides on war tanks, cars, motorcycles, planes and helicopters. Demonstrations and training on the use of WW1 and WW@ weapons. A village with shops and displays to demonstrate the important roles that women played during war through voluntary organisations and work. A market where you can buy and trade vintage models. Professional re-enactors showing you how battles were fought, shooting and explosions included. Camping during 5 days to to soak up the full war atmosphere and not miss any of the events of this 5-day action packed show.

Motographer Horst Roesler, a war history buff, is on location currently aboard a Spitfire fighting some imaginary ennemies. During a cease fire he was able to sent me these very cool pictures.

    Hiya, brilliant photos!

    Found them searching War and Peace Revival photos on google images when I saw the photo of myself – I’m the girl on the BSA Bantam!
