Hi @Fred Karno's Army,

I was at "Beltring in 96"

I'm not sure if the photo is from that year, but it was taken in the 1990's.

All the uniform items are original WW2 issue!

That's a belter of a photo! Great gear too, my favourites from that theatre of war, 51st 'Highland Decorators' & 8th Army.

Hi @Fred Karno's Army,

If you wanted a morning shower you had to get up at about six in the morning, or wait in the long line. The toilets were disgusting at the best of times and the smell alone was enough to put off most people :D

Still is to this day. I hated the site. Folkstone venue for the 5 years it ran,was supreme compared to this hellhole

Yes Beltring  was a hellhole, I went to the loo there once and never again , after that I made it a rule to go before I got there, and I liked Folkstone you could have a jobby in peace there and it was a hell of a lot cleaner
