This year at the Dig for Victory show we were asked to do a display to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the battle of El Alamein, North Africa, 1942.
The A.T.S. girls displayed their mobile canteen and office. The ‘Desert Rats’ set up their desert warfare display including Mortar pit, Camp area and forward R.E.M.E. workshop, accompanied by a Universal carrier, 6 Pounder Anti tank gun, Anti tank gun portee and an Austin K6 truck.
Many thanks to the owners for the loan of their vehicles for our display.
We had a great weekend speaking to the public and some WW2 veterans. We also heard many accounts of Fathers, Uncles and other relatives that served in North Africa.
Many servicemen and women fought in the North African campaign and we aim to ensure that their sacrifices are not forgotten, Lest We Forget.
Here are some of the pictures from the weekend
