The Great Dorset Steam Fair
Once againg the Dorset Steam Fair was fantastic. For those that haven’t been the site is absolutely huge with bars, music and every food stall you can imagine. The trench was immaculate and the 10th Essex shared duties with our good friends the Royal West Kents.
The Garrison fired two 18 pounders twice a day.
The public loved the trench display and we have never seen so many WW1 vehicles in one place. In just one day 2,210 members of the public visited the trench which means that nearly 10,000 people visited the WW1 encampment and trench system throughout the entire event.
After next year the trench is being filled in and we would recommend that everyone tries to get their to experience this unique event.
