Ex Emergency and Military Vehicles
Ex Emergency Vehicles: Ron Varnham
The blues and twos are well represented here from across the ages, exhibits from previous shows ranging from a 1923 Model T fire engine to a New York Fire Department machine that attended the twin towers tragedy of Nine Eleven. We have even had ex airport fire tenders squirting it large in the main arena during the parade of emergency vehicles!
Military Vehicles: John Weedon
The Military section is characterized by its sheer variety of exhibits, with modellers, vehicles and displays including paratrooper bikes sitting next to a Scammel tank transporter as part of a 100 plus strong display. Rare vehicles from past shows include two Russian Uaz vehicles, a 469-not dissimilar to a Land Rover, and a Uaz Trackmaster 452, not unlike a Morris J2 van, a WW2 Paratrooper’s bicycle and a WW2 Morris Gun Tractor. Another rarity is an International M.426 articulated tractor unit, built in 1944 in the U.S.A.
As well as a rich service history, many of these wonderfully preserved and restored machines have appeared in some of the renowned war movies of our time. Visitors can get up close and inspect the vehicles and equipment that helped shape the world as we see it today.
