Pickering War Weekend

Great time at Pickering War Weekend.

Pickering in North Yorkshire held it's War Time Weekend, 16-18th Oct, and I was there with my camera. I even got into the spirit of things and got dressed up with my Wife and two Children.

Pickering in North Yorkshire recaptured the spirit of the second world war, with its annual War Time Weekend. It is a tribute to the men and women who kept Britain's railways running throughout the war. Hundreds of skilled
re-enactors helped create the authentic atmosphere that has earned it an international reputation for authenticity. Other North Yorkshire Moors Railway line villages including Goathland, Levisham and Grosmont took part with wartime signs, notices, sandbags and taped up windows, and re-enactors everywhere, showing how life was during the war years.

On saturday, there was a parade through Pickering of period civilian and army vehicles and in the evening, a superb costume dinner dance, complete with NAAFI canteen and Glen Miller type orchestra.
