This page will grow over time. Currently, there isn't much to see!

Event detail:
Chatham Militaria Fair (Regular Event)

Assorted orders of dress, from the Chatham Militaria Fair over the course of 2008...
(The following photos were carefully posed photo for the camera, photos copyright 2008 and courtesy of ukms2000)


No 8 Dress, (Winter order)
"Cpl Stenning demonstrating the new Vulcan Nerve Pinch Detention Technique on an offender"
(Thanks to R.Sigs Cpl R Oliver (also of 21st Army Gp Pro Coy LHG) for standing in as "The Offender")

Note that Cpl Stenning is wearing a 58 webbing belt around his jacket, whereas Cpl Oliver is wearing the later issue Belt, Working, Plastic.

No 8 Dress, (Summer order)
"Note taking following a minor traffic collision"

Note pistol and holster on the left, lanyard over right shoulder, whistle in left chest pocket of jacket with chain threaded through button hole level with pocket top, then hidden from view to lock about a button lower down the chest. Also, while a shirt is worn, the collar is only folded over the jacket collar in summer.

No 13 Dress "Working Dress", (Shirtsleeves order)
"Taking notes at a routine stop (offenders off camera)"

Note whistle is now in right trouser pocket, chain looped through belt-loop button fixing.

No 13 Dress "Barack Dress" (Winter order)
"Yes, young man, I'm a Redcap, here to bellow point-blank using parade-ground volume at unsuspecting squaddies right ear-holes!"
(reference to a comical moment in October, when a fellow living history buff called the above simulated Corporal "Sir" - we think you could have heard the corrective comments in nearby Rochester, five or six miles down the road!)

Note shoulder titles (staybrite) on jersey epaulettes; shirt underneath also has them fitted. Corporal tapes in correct place on right arm only, as per uniform regulations (Note alsothe tie, which has been pushed out above the Jersey heavy Wool's neck line to the level of the bottom of the tie knot - depending on your unit depended how some of the kit was worn - it was even, often, down to how your RSM viewed the wearing of uniform!).

Chatham Militaria Fair, December 2008
Simulated Cpls Ives (left) and Stenning (right) with Recent Military History Re-Enactor Simulated L/Cpl Stevens (centre).
David's a little bleary-eyed, seems he had a rather late night and no coffee yet (hence Sim'd Cpl Stennings' evil grin)!

Chatham Militaria Fair, December 2008
"HONEST LADS - I WUZ NICKED BY TWENTY TEN FOOT TALL MONKEYS!"
- or -
"That wuz me shin you 'orrible Green Howards FING!"
Sim'd Cpl Stenning, not happy with his leg being clouted - even by acident - by Colour Sergeant Trevor Bush of the Green Howards Living History Group, arranges a proper welcome for the C/Sgt - No Wonder Sim'd Cpl Ives is laughing (that'll teach you to laugh at me, Rog!)

Chatham Militaria Fair, December 2008
"End Of Term" photo - all the various re-enactors that tend to turn up regularly at Chatham.

Event detail:
Essex Bunker Bash, Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker site
May 2008


Essex Bunker Bash 2008, Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker
"I'M mayhem. HE'S chaos!"
A contrived and posed photo late on the Sunday, after a rather tiring couple of days directing traffic and answering the General Publics Questions ("Yes, Ma'am, the toilets are all the way over there... yes. By the big load of scaffolding disguised as an aerial mast... no, I don't think it requires a ten pence piece"), a little light relief: "Little and large", we thought.
Wrong.
instead, we got Christened "118-118" by the lads and lasses of the Historic Military Vehicle Trust!
Ooooh, we'll 'ave you, and yer little Land Rover, too!

Event detail:
Southwick Park (Defence College of Policing and Guarding) Open Day,
September 2008


Southwick Park (Defence College of Policing and Guarding) Open Day, September 2008
Displaying a skeleton stand (due to a new land rover without a NATO trailer hitch for the usual trailer-load of kit!), the Southwick Park event gave a taste of what Cold War Provost is capable of putting up!
Note also (in the apex of the tent) the Plaque won by Cpl Ives at Military Mayhem 2008 (we couldn't help bragging!)

Event detail:
Military Mayhem (Faversham, Kent), 2009


Military Mayhem (Faversham, Kent) Military Vehicle and Living History event, 2009
Well, we won again - this time for Best Living History Display 2009!


Simulated Sgt Stenning collects the award
(Sim/Cpl Ives in left background by motorcycle)


Sim/Sgt Stenning: "OK, now we've nicked him for breathing in a public place, where the hell do I stick this microphone, Dave?"
Sim/Cpl Ives: "Um... is that a leading question, Sergeant?"
Victim: NO! Don't even think about it!

One of the event staff, having been heard to be somewhat critical of the foot drill exhibited by us, is invited to be a tad more tactful in future! (Thanks for being such a good sport, mate!)
