War & Peace Show: 2009 A General Overview of Modern Forces Camplife
The War & Peace show in the UK is the worlds largest Military Vehicle show, about 4,000 privately owned military vehicles from Tanks to motorbikes. There is also a large Living History and Re-enactment display and this year was our debut, we chose to represent aspects of a typical SOG team house with aspects taken from photographs of CCC, CCN and CCS. We had the following elements;
Team radio room: a representation of a team room with radio and actual SOG radio traffic RT Montana Static Line Display: A manuquin representing Mike Sheppard of RT Montana during their staic line drop in 1971, showing the equipment carried including the UZI carried by Sheppard instead of a reserve shoot Operation Spindown: A bunker representing Operation Spindown
It was great to speak to the public and other renenactors about what were representing and the history of SOG, lots of new friends were made.
