We were so proud to have the wonderful men and women, dressed in WWII uniforms outside the Arcade with their fabulous vintage Military Vehicles once again this year. Everyone at the Arcade and the Royal British Legion send their sincere thanks for all that they have done. Not only do they raise money for the Poppy Appeal, but they give memories back to people who remember these vehicles from the War and what their parents and grand-parents did during that time. As you will see from the photos, young people are fascinated by these vehicles and the people who own them.
Andy Dawson turned the Bedford MWR (Radio) truck into a field kitchen. He’s a great cook!
