1940S RELIVED


News


‘Winston’, ‘Monty’ and some ‘Land Girls’ (Tim Morris).


aves of families and individuals eager for a day of nostalgia attended the annual 1940s Relived event at the Museum on Saturday 13th May. This year the focus was again centred round the Campbell Lawn as the Dance Marquee hosted a non-stop programme of music, dancing and entertainment.


W The Race Bays and a few pitches opposite


provided a vibrant vintage shopping village where sellers offered original and reproduction clothing, home wares and memorabilia all from the era. By the Dance Marquee the Learning Team welcomed youngsters eager to try their hand at making a Wellington Bomber in a specially-themed paper craft activity.


There was no specific vehicle theme this year


in order to entice a wider variety of participants and it paid off. Amongst the military and civilian vehicles were a Singer Super 10 in maroon from 1947, Ken Robinson’s 1938 German Simca signals van that was used during the French occupation, an amphibious Studebaker Weasel M29C from 1945 and, dressed as a British Civil Defence chief warden, Stephen Wooder came with his 1948 Morris Y-type van. Chris Sales’s 1938 Jubilee four-berth caravan attracted a lot of attention. Complete with an awning, canvas chairs and looking resplendent in two-tone green on the grass in the corner of the Paddock, visitors were allowed inside to see this beautifully restored caravan which took Chris several years to complete. The Press Hut had a glamorous air to it as ladies queued up to get their hair and make-up done by the team from Hair That Turns Heads and at 12 noon, in the Barbara Cartland Room, Sue Whyte set up a vintage portrait studio taking shots of anyone wishing to enjoy the period setting in the Club- house.


Inside the dance marquee music ran all day from 10.00am until 9.00pm courtesy of specialist vintage DJ Chris Reynolds aka ‘Swing Shift’. This


1938 German Simca signals van and, just visible to the right, the maroon 1947 Singer Super 10 (Tim Morris).
