These photos bring back a fond memory for me of visiting that place about 17 years ago. It's a brilliant place to take the family for the day. You must get there early to be able to see it all, the place is jam packed with interesting stuff, including a landing craft that you can sit in, complete with sound affects of what it was like landing under fire on the Normandy beaches in WW2.

My trip there will always be a memorable one, I stuck my fingers down a Gatling gun on the front of a A-10 Thunderbolt II in the American Air Museum, and those WW2 aircraft hanging from the ceiling like Airfix models are great. Did you manage to pick up and play about with a tommy machine gun and grenade near Monty's caravan? Duxford is HIGHLY recommended for a day out, try get there as soon as they open the doors, there is tons and tons to see there, a fab place for all the family. I have a long video I made when I visited there.

Thanks for sharing these photos Rusty Very Happy

Fantastic pics Dean, I've been there a couple of times it's an amazing day out.

They have some special event days where they have aircraft and tank displays, it can be really busy on those days though.

Rustygun,

Excellent assortment of classic weapons.. That Bren gun looks the business, I believe they used to suffer from jamming on the battlefield?

I bet you even have an anti aircraft gun.

No anti aircraft gun ...ha ha..
I don't think the Bren jammed a lot it was a great weapon
The sten gun on the other hand was  prone to jamming a lot and was not popular
Also have one of these ..
This was the first weapon I ever bought , that got me into collecting , through a mutual friend  I met a guy that owned  a armourer to the movie industry the company is called bapty,   He sold me this  ww2 original sten they used with a batch they bought after the war ,  
I went o his warehouse and it was amazing ,  he had an anti aircraft gun.....  he said my sten would have undoubtedly been used in almost every British war film during the late fifties,  sixties and seventies, as they had exclusive rights to supply weapons for them. And his whole batch of stens were used on the longest day..my favorite film ever,    So some where on screen is my sten..
He also showed me the original Indiana jones pistol used by Harrison ford they supplied
Anyway here's my famous Very Happy   Sten
