    Military event at Stradbally.

    This looks quite interesting - I will make an effort to attend.

    It should indeed be a good day - all being well I should be there as well

    Intrigued by the mention of Italians, very rare at this sort of event....

    I'm afraid I know little of what's happening on that side of things (being handled by two others volunteers), but do know some of the operational side, which hsould be different!

    I'm planning a seaborne invasion on Thursday, striking inland, then re-grouping for some mopping-up operations on Sunday.

    Well, that was an interesting day.

    Crowd control equipment was available, if things got out-of hand.



    Not everybody had got the hang of camouflage theory....




    Headquarters had been established.




    Not having a valid ticket was looked on very badly.




    Hostilities were not continuous.

    Guarding of supply routes was taken seriously.




    Troop trains arrived regularly.




    ..and departed.






    Multi-national instruction was provided by civilian staff.

    Hi Borithe

    Excellent to see the photos

    Though some chaps not in proper uniform- they should have been shot!

    Was there many attendees?

    A few men were on the charge sheet at the end of the day.....

    I would suspect that there could have been 50 to 100 attendees.

    Some more pictures.

    Not an ideal item to have in the boot at a checkpoint in the Port Laoise area...




    The weather held, though there was a fair breeze at times - a few brief showers did occur.




    Reinforcements arrived.

    In the excitement of touring the interior of Stradbally Cathedral, I failed to take any pictures of it.

    It will be a vast improvement on the existing facilities - and will be the second largest train servicing facility in Laois.




    Steam traction was the order of the day.
