WW2 Victory Show 2012. Cosby, Leicestershire.
Back from the WW2 Victory Show held at Cosby, in Leicestershire (UK). Saw some stunning vehicles and witnessed a few fantastic aerial displays. The latter of which included a "Dawn Patrol" of nine WW1 bi-planes and tri-planes (both British and German). Seeing them all circling in the sky above you is just jaw-dropping. The British infantry above were entrenched in a wooded area which the public were allowed to walk through and examine. All the re-enactors we spoke to were highly knowledgeable and friendly. The trade stalls were interesting too. Although one or two were very overpriced in regards to their militaria, there were a couple that had some great stuff at bargain prices. The show carries on again tomorrow (Sunday) so if you live nearby and have some free time it's definitely worth your while. More details can be found here: http://www.thevictoryshow.co.uk/
