Military Mayhem 2010

22nd August 2010
On Sunday 22nd August i visited the Military Mayhem Show, located at the Wrotham Hill Showground in Kent.

This year the show celebrated 65 years since VE day. Their chosen charity for this year was Help for Heroes. This little lad on top of the Jeep, sitting with Papa Smurf, was raising money for Help for Heroes by getting rides in 20 or more vehicles. He only thought that he could raise £9, as he reckoned this was a lot of money, but he has raised over £500 for the charity. *EDIT* As of 3rd September 2010, i have been informed that he has raised £731 and the money is still coming in *EDIT*

On display were a range of tanks, military vehicles and re-enactors in the main arena, along side static displays of all ranges of military vehicles, from jeeps to very large tanks.

Rides were available in a tank, which can hold up to 12 people. This was a very fun and disorientating experience, to which i have the bruises and mud to show for the ride.

A very pretty lady was sat on the top of one of the display tanks, who was very happy to smile for the camera. It turned out to be, none other than KAS – The Forces Sweetheart, who specialises in singing songs from the WW2 era and in particular tribute songs for our war veterans from all conflicts.

A good day was had by all, and for £5 entry fee and reasonably priced refreshments and stalls, made it the perfect day out for the family. Roll on next years event.
