Thanks for sharing Andy's, looks like this is a nice show I'll have to keep a look out for it next year.

Hi Andy,
That looks like an interesting day out
Any 432s for sale and it's nice to see a CET, my brother commanded one and also instructed on it. I was involve in the it's initial trials. When the Stalwart and 432 were no longer allowed to swim it was the only piece of kit in the British Army that could. My brother moved to the Armoured Engineers and commanded a bridge layer. In the Gulf war he also had mine ploughs attached (the weight of the bridge helps), and he towed a giant viper (mine clearing explosive hose). The bridge layer (AVLB-Armoured Vehicle Layed Bridge) at the RE museum was my brothers mount during the Gulf war.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the Pics, looks like a good day out.

You didn't by any chance photograph a walkaround of the HUP 15 cwt?

Cheers

Al

Andy, thanks for getting this up, nice work on the yellow balloon...

Al, sorry i didn't get any walkround photos, but i'm sure the guys at IMPS might help you out, worth contacting them.

Nige, the Turbulents are a great show.

Maybe next year we could make it a southern Posse day out and invite the Posse's B&B owner down for the weekend?

That sounds like a good plan Andy
