East Fortune World Wars Experience 2012

The weekend was a roaster. Sunrise at work and you just know it is going to be an amazing day...


A midday Fatbike Tour taster and it was stunning weather...


Back at FatBike Tours HQ and after washing the bikes a WW1 German soldier appeared with a Tommy prisoner!...


" Vere are you going with ze bicycles" he asked, i produced my `paperz`,  and he liked the flyer -:)
Then headed off along the street to promote Sundays event.

A comment i have to make about this years event is how little it was advertised locally, some of my mates missed it as never knew it was on, despite me babbling on about it for weeks...

This years event was blessed with lovely clear hot weather, hot if you were in a WW2 uniform lugging heavy equipment about... great if viewing with an ice cream in hand...
And the Germans won the re enactment battle this year!
I took loads of pics but here is just a few...

    Gutted I missed this (again) and you're right, the local advertising was very poor.
