Wartime in the Vale 2016
A selection of photographs from the 1st day of the event (the Saturday). I had no official status on this year's event, and thus only attended on this one day between 10am and 4pm.
In order to reduce the processing time of the photographs, my plan was concentrate mainly on photographing those exhibits showing their ID number, or those that I recognised from previous events. However, this was complicated (or perhaps simplified, from another point-of view), by the event brochure only listing the first 200 military exhibits, and since I didn't think it likely I would be able to get any updates from the show's organisers, I generally ignored exhibits Green 201+ (perhaps if I hadn't, this collection might be bigger). I didn't photograph any of the re-enactments, but did managed to photograph the Pyrotechnics display and the flypast, and managed to take a few of Kitty Ribbons (however, in "singing" mode - no clothes removal this year, I'm afraid).
Because of the reduced quantity of photographs taken, this collection hasn't been sectioned by category, and because of the issues related above, the military exhibit photographs are somewhat biased towards those exhibits with names beginning A-M (particularly Austin Champs and Land Rovers). The exhibits are ordered by name rather than ID (in a lot of cases I don't have the ID), and, wherever possible, I've added vehicle registrations to the description for reference purposes.
