Evesham, MVT Show 2012

''Wartime in the Vale'', National MVT Show, Evesham, Worcestershire, 23 & 24 June 2012

Despite the showers and mud, a good time was had by all. Having a nissen hut for accommodation certainly helped, and as always the cooks did a great job laying on plenty of hot food and tea. The constant supply of hot water for washing also made things more pleasant.

In terms of the display itself, it was great to see the 18-pdr in action for the first time, and the night-time searchlight display in the rain looked very dramatic. Manoeuvring the 25-pdr and limber in the display area, on a muddy slope with a reduced detachment, proved somewhat challenging, however!
