Rougham Airfield Miscellany, Suffolk - 3rd October 2010

It's a mostly-damp Sunday, and there's not much else to do, so we haul the van over to Rougham for a bit of the "Ploughs to Propellers" event, where Clive is showing his 1941 Chrysler staff car. There's not a huge amount happening, on account of the wind and rain, but it's still fun to have a picnic in a field and watch the various traction engines and military vehicles sliding through the mud
