    Hi everybody,

    I recently spent a weekend at the Chalke Valley History Festival and I have to say it was an amazing weekend!

    Some of the highlights included talks with British Dambuster George “Johnny” Johnson and a German Knight's Cross winner Günter Halm. We watched a battle re-enactment, danced the night away to the sound of the beautiful Bombshell Belles at the Blitz Party, climbed inside a British Cromwell Tank and were invited to fire the legendary 25 pounder British Artillery gun!

    I thought you might be interested in the video we made :)

    I hope you find it of interest.

    Outstanding ! Other than the apparent "dampness" (insert grin here) looks like a great time.

    Absolutely fantastic. I don't know what I prefer, the party, the veterans or the canon shooting.
