These 1940s events inevitably concentrate on the wartime and all things military. I've tried with these shots to focus (excuse the pun) on the people who dressed as members of the public would have dressed in those days.
|This lady was nicely dressed but the obvious mobile 'phone is out of character (& time).|
|When someone poses you just have to photograph them, even if this is military.|
|A very nice couple tho'|
|He was a really good character.|
This is the "Petwood Hotel" which was the officer's mess for RAF 617 Squadron
(the famous Dambusters) in WW2.
|I'm very pleased I have a Compact System Camera which is as light as a feather, almost.|
|People on the lawn of the Petwood.|
|Sat in the lounge of the Petwood.|
|They were all enjoying this chap's singing. He was really good.|
|Almost the end of the day so I had to find a dog to finish on.|
This definitely is the end. As usual at the end of an event the bins were full and overflowing.
At least people did their best and piled the excess close to the bin for collection.
