 RAF Leeming Family Day - September 12th
By Steve Carr

Several members of the Durham Tees Valley MVT and NE WW2 Re-enactors were invited down to RAF Leeming for their annual Family Day. It was a great day out for the families of the RAF personnel on base, complimented by good weather and a small air show by current RAF types and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

There were around a half dozen military vehicles in attendance but this could possibly be improved next year if the YMVT were also involved. I'll keep my ear to the ground for next years event.

Getting my 'Follow Me' Jeep in front of the Lanc for a photo shoot made my day, but there were plenty of highlights as can be seen by the pictures.
