  • move
2013 marks the 31st annual War and Peace show and the first year at it’s new venue at Folkestone racecourse the old RAF Westen hanger. The show is billed as the Greatest gathering of military vehicles on the planet with 5 fields of military vehicle displays three of which are ‘green’ camping ie. military tents only, also several fields of living history displays.

To give an idea of the size here’s a list of vehicles
  • 23 Amphibious
  • 69 Ambulances
  • 120 Bicycles
  • 298 Motorcycles
  • 467 Jeeps
  • 719 Light vehicles
  • 272 Medium vehicles
  • 312 Heavy vehicles
  • 22 Artillery pieces
  • 109 Wheeled Armour
  • 81 Tracked Armour
  • 34 Tracked miscellaneous (Kettenkrad, MLRS, Caterpillar D2 etc)
  • 152 Miscellaneous (mainly trailers)
  • 120 living history group displays
All that together with the arena events, vintage cars, traders where you can buy anything from a washer to a running Cromwell tank £199,000 if your interested, a model show, dance and music areas and of course all sorts of refreshment.

The show is held over five days for the public and at this new venue is huge, I was not able to see everything in one day.

Thanks very much for the photos, shows that I missed a whole lot! I ws mostly going round the traders stalls, but managed to score a whole host of reduced resin and etch stuff from that wonderful lady on the Elite Modell stand Plus a mil spec thermal imager, though I did miss out on a 1/1 scale inflatable decoy Scud missile from the Soviet era The missiles in image 62 are real practice ones, being sold by Johnsons Of Leeds. Their stall had so much great stuff. They had an awesome complete EOD remote camera system, but someone bought up all 10 sets of them I did get that nice thermal imager from them though!
