World at War event at Fort Nelson this weekend




Fort Nelson

Originally uploaded by dalyhistory2010

Theres a World at War event going on at Fort Nelson, near Portsmouth this weekend on Sunday and Monday.

British, American, Russian and German soldiers will battle for control of the ramparts, featuring Machine Guns, Pyrotechnics, Artillery and gun firing and Armoured Vehicles. I’m a big fan of these kinds of events, they’re great for bringing history alive.

At £5 per adult, £2.50 for children and £12 for a family ticket, its a bargain.
