Enham Trust commemorated the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of El Alamein over the weekend of 20th and 21st October.
Enham Alamein Village Green stepped back in time and had displays of 1940’s army personnel, vehicles, Armoury and some good old fashioned Fete games like knock the tins down, hoopla and roll a penny with swing boats for the children. The house on the green became a 1940s home and a historical display of battle artefacts will be on show in the church.
At about 1 o'clock, re-enactors fired 8 shells from a 25 pounder, made in 1942. The re-enactment was done by "The Garrison", who have 12 guns from the second world war, and organise displays. "This was a very nostalgic visit back in time, and with some marvellous memorabilia for the many people in the village far too young to remember the war. With the services on Sunday, the village and the trust have commemorated the Battle of Alamein in an excellent fashion."
