V.J. Day at Cobbaton Collection, North Devon

Calling all Military minded and vintage fans, VJ Commemoration Day takes place at Cobbaton Collection in North Devon over the weekend of 13th and 14th August.  Come along and celebrate Victory in Japan with displays of military vehicles in the field next door (watch out for the tanks!), local re-enactors act out various periods from WW1 onwards and it is hoped that local veterans from the Burma Star will be there.

Gates open from 10am to 5pm and entry is Free, but the organisers have asked if people would be kind enough to donate to the Burma Star Veterans association.

The normal collection is open all weekend, so there will be stacks to see and when you need a break the NAAFI Van is open serving tea and buns!    Cobbaton are hoping for a brilliant fun weekend and really look forward to seeing as many people as possible.

If you are going, please leave me a comment below and let me know!  I will be there!
