The Bressingham Blitz 1940s Dance, Bressingham, Norfolk - 21st May 2010

As part of a fundraising charity drive, one of Isobel's "Mommy" friends organises a 1940s dance at the Steam Museum in Bressingham. The event is well attended, and it's an interesting venue - including a Victorian carousel doing rides, and plenty of trains and steam engines on display. Clive gets his 1940s GMC 6x6 truck out to give us all a lift over, and although it breaks down on the A143 near Stuston, it adds to the fun. Meanwhile, Mikey-P and Bill have dressed up as German soldiers...
