Valley Gardens Harrogate 2012

For Valley Gardens Harrogate, Corporal Lycett sends this report.
This is the second year that we have attended this new show. The show is held to raise money for the restoration of the Magnesia Well in the Valley Gardens. Entry to the show is free and money is raised through donations.
We were in the privileged position of being able to camp overnight. We had a good turn out and a new slant on the display. The idea was to set up a bit of a signal hub using the two Jeeps and Bills wireless listening set-up. This worked to a degree and seemed to interest the public.
All of us were kept pretty busy (the foot fall count through the park for the day was 12000) and the weather stayed dry until the last moment so we had a very wet tear down.
All in all this is a good little show.

Here is a selection of photos taken, with more here.

Elvington May 2012

For Elvington 2012, Corporal Lycett sends this report.
Back at Elvington again. We had a big turn out for what is one of the main shows in the area. The weather was so hot it was difficult to do much more than try and keep cool. The order of the day was shirt sleeves from breakfast to supper. We had quite a good display along the usual lines. We had two Jeeps, the dinning shelter and the 14 man tent. We had a small weapons display which, thanks to Darren, included a real Piat. As always we had lots of interest. There seemed to be more displays this year and room was very tight. There was a fly past by a Spit but just on the Saturday.
We unfortunately have no photographs from this event!

Blyth May 2012

For the first event of the season, Corporal Lycett sends this report.
This was the first time that the East Yorks have displayed at Blyth. The venue was a first world war coastal battery site. The group arrived on the Friday evening to a very cold and windy site. It was so cold that spirits quickly fell, however on Saturday morning it had warmed up a little bit and most importantly the wind had dropped. 
We decided to stick it out and soon got a simple display set out. As the day wore on it got warmer and warmer. By Sunday morning the weather had changed from winter to heat wave. Sunday was quite busy and we had a lot of interest from the many locals who turned out for the event.

Here is a selection of photos taken, with more here.
