Clive's Military Vehicle Convoy, Brome Aerodrome, Suffolk - 16th July 2011

It's a bit of a rainy morning as Clive "Chickens" arranges a get-together of the Suffolk Military Vehicles Trust on Brome Aerodrome (now known as Eye Airfield). Eye (or Brome) is one of the most intact USAAF 8th Airforce bases remaining, with its runway complete (apart from the bit with Roy "Light Pollution" Humphries' sheds on), and it's most likely the largest gathering of military vehicles on the site since the end of World War Two. It keeps The Boy entertained too, although every time he gets too close to a running truck or motorboke he gets a bit scared...
