1940s Weekend

Another year and it’s been another success!

Many thanks indeed for ALL who helped make his event such a really great success again this year 2023.
We would especially like to thank Helen Bodiam, who, following the fine example of her late husband Nigel, bravely took a lead in organising teams of wartime re-enactors, the Desert  Rats and exhibitors of a variety of military vehicles, motor cycles tractors & etc.

Those of us, of an age, felt taken back to those years; remembering the great community spirit that turned a stiff upper lip to hard times and made do whatever.

Hats off to the weather too! Who said it would rain?! 

Thank you to Euan and Mark for taking these great photos! – Have any photos? Don’t be scared to send them to our Facebook page. We love to see photos from your view!


You didn’t miss it, did you?!

This year 2023, our ever-popular 1940’s weekend was held on the 17th and 18th of June.
Both Keith Town and Dufftown stations took on their traditional 1940’s war-time look.

It’s always been a huge success!
The many exhibits included shops with war-time memorabilia and live demonstrations of old-time farm machinery.  Land-girls, Lumber-Jacks & Jills will be there to show you how we fought the war on the Home Front. 

These were the heroes who worked tirelessly in all weathers to maintain supplies of food and fuel.

The “Desert Rats” were, as always, in attendance demonstrating the harsh conditions our troops encountered in the desert.
(The weather, was absolutely perfect!)
