SUMMER OF 44

(Hold your mouse over each image to find out more information about it)

We were asked to come and help with the filming of an ITV production called 'Summer of 44' which will be shown from April - June 2004. We filmed for the whole weekend, and worked long days, so hopefully there will be lots of footage of us when it is released! It will only be shown on Meridian television, which is the ITV channel for the south coast.

The 29th supplied 1 jeep and a GMC, and on Sunday 2 other vehicles arrived supplied by the 1st Infantry Division. Many thanks to Dave Pratt's 2nd Rangers for their hard work setting up the campsite on the Sunday!
