Waltfest

#1
Paid a vist to the war and peace show near Paddock wood on Sat and I can honestly say that I've never seen so many walters gathered in the same place at the same time.

Stood listening to a retard telling a crowd of onlookers how he'd recently stormed a taliban trench system single handledly, hosing them down with his 'gympy'. The outcome was that he was awarded an MM !

Laugh? I nearly strangled the cnut :evil: :evil:

If it was the slim coloured bloke in the sharp suit, that was Johnson Beharry - he was wandering around on Saturday.

Actually, watching him stroll around, it was apparent that most of UK civpop didn't recognise him.....

..... and I wonder what he thought of those walting it up in desert kit?! FFS, how can you re-enact wars that are still going on and in which young soldiers are getting killed and maimed?!

sound like a good read.....I'd buy it....read dusty warriors No * way this guys a walt......Well done Harry! proud of you mate!
"Barefoot Soldier" a good read & difficult to put down, it’s a book of 2 half’s. First being from his early, upbringing in Grenada to life in the UK. Second being his deployment & the award, strongly recommended. My only criticism is it is obvious that the co author & had a major input into writing this book

IFSEC at NEC is a first class WaltFest. "Is that a sunbed tan or is that a sandpit tan?" and everybody with a remotely Safrican accent is ex Sellous Scouts.

I spent lunchtimes wandering around whispering "Is it safe?"

Must of done it 20 times and 19 times I got a big smile and "Yes, the hardened Titanium case is cushioned by..."

By which time I had wandered away. Only one guy broke into a grin and said "The Boys From Brazil, right?"

Quality stuff.

Shit. You're right. Wrong scary ex Nazi torturer. An easy mistake to make at IFSEC.

Every man thinks meanly of himself for not having been a soldier. --Samuel Johnson--

Pity the poor little blighters who have to make themselves a legend in their own minds - or enlist them! bring back the shilling!

That'd be a laugh - go up and try to recruit them in front of their audience. Are you on the reserve list? We need you now. I've got the papers in the tent over there!

I visited the "War & Peace" show on Saturday (to enhance my collection) and spend the day walking among the stalls in ankle deep brown windsor.
I must say there were a lot of Walts around and Johnson Beharry was signing copies of his book along with Tim Collins. I went for a beer in the bar and Johnson was there signing his book along with Tim Collins. I dread to think what he thought of all the Walts (dressed in desert camo) who were buying his book. Unbelievably, a girl or wife with one chap who was buying his book studied his head up close and said "look at all those scars", fecking silly cow. I think the saddest people were the lads walking around in US desert combats with all the gear on carrying airsoft weapons.
Sad really.

where was this show and how did you hear about it?
It's at the old Hop Farm at Paddock Wood (in Kent), also known as Beltring and the old Whitbread Brewery. It's been going on every year now for what seems like a hundred years. The shows origins were for WW2 vehicle owners to meet and show off thier restored vehicles but over the years it has become more of a gathering of re-enactors and walts. The militaria stalls are good though and dealers now come from affar afield as Japan.

If you are interested in restored WW2 army vehicles though, there are hundreds to look at. The only problem is, the Land Rovers are in great attendence, and lets face it, if you wanted to look at an ex Army Land Rover you can see one in any Tesco's car park.
