of the largest military shows in the UK takes place at Kemble airfield,

near Cirencester, on Friday 27, Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 June 2008.

The three days will be packed with exhibits and special events for all

the family – all with a military theme.Last year, the aircraft

of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight was one of the highlights of

the show and, in what is the 90th anniversary year of the RAF, it

returns for 2008 with a Dakota fly-past on Saturday 28 June. On each of

the three days, there will be a small air display of military aircraft.On

the ground, 25 static aircraft will be displayed, including a selection

of Hornet Moths, Piper Cubs and Terriers as well as a T28 and Nord

1002. More than 800 military and classic vehicles will also be

present – armoured vehicles, Jeeps, classic cars and motorcycles.

Members of the Military Vehicle Trust (MVT), which will celebrate its

40th anniversary at the Kemble Military Show 2008, will own many of

these vehicles. A registered charity and the oldest military vehicle

club in the world, MVT members have vehicles from pre-First World War

to the present day, from bicycles to tanks and from just about every

manufacturing country in the world. All are proud of the standard of

their vehicles, which is reflected in the frequent requests for

vehicles for film and TV work.Many army regiments and wartime

veterans, including Chelsea Pensioners, will be at the Kemble Military

Show 2008 together with military bands.Finally, for the bargain hunter and collector of militaria, there will be many trade stands to browse.John

Keedwell, director of the Kemble Military Show 2008, says: "Each year,

we make the show bigger and better and for 2008 we've surpassed

ourselves. Kemble is definitely the best military show in the

south-west and now one of the largest in the country." Admission Prices: Friday: Adult: £5, Children/OAP/Concessions: £3, Under 5’s go free Saturday & Sunday: Adult: £7, Children/OAP/Concessions: £4, Under 5’s go freeAll tickets to be purchased at the entrance to the show. Gates open 9.30am-6pm.
