one great hobby of mine is keeping a tab on old mates from Windsor Safari Park and I returned to Legoland 5 years ago to get an unofficial tour of the old Windsor Safari Areas not bulldozed by Legoland

it was surreal :oops:

and I have requests from people to do it again!! :shock: that place will never die :cry:
I did my digs back in the seventies and early eighties The best was the Iron Age fort at Danebury, where I had the priviledge of working under Barry Suttcliffe, who did a number of TV programmes, and was a really great guy. Another good one was Billingsgate, on the site of the old fish market.
Happy days/ :D

I Play rugby and am an ambulance service first responder- and Im also a member of a WW2 US AIRBOURNE PARATROOPER living history- (82nd a/b- -the film the longest day is a good depiction of how we base ourselves), we make sure we look the part but have to make sure we have researched the kit and role for accuracy. We go to many events all over the world, but I still can't understand why people do german ww2 stuff? - for accuacy and to have an 'enemy' to shoot -i know but some people take it too far. Beltring (war and peace show) in kent is the militaria and reenacting nuts mecca, its brill.
You can by anything from a tank to a handgun (deact of course) and all the kit under the sun. I have a couple of websites for interest:
