Wartime in the Vale 2017
Photographs from the second day of the event (the Sunday - this was the first year that I had not been in attendance on the  Saturday).  As I was only in attendance on one day, and had no official  status, this is not as comprehensive as collection as in previous years; I concentrated on exhibits and Arena activities.

In light of the event brochure not listing around half the military exhibits, and inaccuracies in the entries of some of the vehicles that did get listed, the exhibit photographs are in alphabetical order  by name, and I have only included the exhibit number in the full title if I  believe the brochure entry to be correct for the exhibit.   In a lot of cases, exhibits have been identified either from previous photographs that I have taken of them, or by internet searches based on vehicle registrations.   I feel that if I had been doing this event for the first time, I would have had a lot more difficulty in identifying exhibits.

I would also query the "10th Anniversary" status of this event.   By my reckoning, the first "Wartime in the Vale" took place in  2009 (a fact that both the event brochure of that year and the previous organiser supports).  Either I've missed two years, or this was only the eighth anniversary (the event's original organiser agrees with my count).
