Absolutely amazing, I had no idea so many of that age vehicle still existed, let alone be capable of running! Splendid job finding that Brian.  :thumbsup:

I felt the late model VW Beetle at 26:06 could have taken a less obtrusive position in the parade though....
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I was interested in what they were towing.   While the double tow low-loader might have been post war and the low-loader with the tank was I think WWII or later, it was interesting to see that such vehicles still existed.  The green on the Rolls AC was a bit "off" but more than likely accurate.  Too many beards, not enough hairy upper-lips which were required under official regulations until 1917 when Nicholson became the CIGS (he hated his and had the Regs changed) but a splendid effort all round!   :thumbsup:

It was Bovington's Mk IV that they were pulling on the modern lowboy.  I was initially curious about the chaps walking alongside the ancient lowboy, until I realized they were brakemen.
