The piper in peacetime

 Chippenham Home Guard - CHG  website

The weekend after Weston-super-Mare -  ie 30 June/I July 2012, I played at the Wiltshire Armed Forces weekend. 

FREE entry - displays from serving, ex and retired military personnel, cadet units, military vehicles, bands, trade stalls, old style fair rides, Forces charities, re-enactor displays from different eras, flypasts. Sunday - Parade of standards through town and Drumhead Service in Park.


Such events generally include small units of re-enactors and this one raised more than £800 for charity.  CHG is a friendly team and well worth a visit when you see the name at future events.





The website is here.


Here's Jenny Neath and Pauline Passerini depicting home life in the 1940s.  More here.
