As a member of The Scottish Military Vehicle Group I was delighted to again take part this year in our Forces in the Field Event.
Returning for its eighth year...Forces in the Field didn't disappoint!
The event at Culzean Castle is run by Pete Scully and showcased an exciting array of historical and modern day military personnel, equipment and operations. Over 5568 visitors attended this event and enjoyed climbing inside the cockpit of a plane, watching soldiers from a by-gone era march into battle and discovered what the Vikings ate in camp. Whether it was marvelling at the weapons or gasping at the gas attack, cooking for the company or surviving in the trenches, learning about the story behind the forces from flintlock pistols to the present day, there really was so much fun for all the family. Living History Re-enactments, Weaponry, vehicle displays, Field Kitchen cooking, Remote control tanks, Aircraft cockpit display, 1940’s Hairdresser, Legion, Charity Stalls it was a jam packed weekend and something for everyone and to top it all off everyone basked in the beautiful sunshine on day 1!
Sadly Pete announced it would be his last event at Culzean Castle but I personally would like to thank him for his dedication and commitment over the years, he done an amazing job.
There was lots of fun had by all the family and if you missed it this year, then don't worry we'll be back again next year.
