The board with the War memorial and figures on is mine. I started it 4 years ago, and each year find and put a few more on to build it up. Last time I added the boy scouts, and next time I have a set of Dan Taylor figures to incorporate. Some naval ratings and better examples of fire ambulance etc figures are on the "wants" list too. The value of the cost spent on white metal etc and resin and other figures now on that board is circa £80.

Well done Chris.

Yesterday after spending all day marching at the Cenotaph in London (did you not see me on TV? I was wearing a black coat, Black beret and red poppy :-D ) My wife and I got back and looked at the display photos and both had a tear in our eyes, when we spotted your little War Memorial display, we thought you had nailed it on the head.

Well done it was brilliant.

Regards Splash

Certainly a classic display, and a different one at the same time; great work by all

Excellent display. This must have been a really interesting stand for so many people. Well done to the volunteers.

I intend to "re-model" it for next year. And in doing so set it out differently on a new base board which will all then fit in one of my plastic boxes better for transporting it. A few more of the guards band may appear converted and painted differently, and a tea-wagon from an old Airfix conversion article may make it to the outer edge of board in a civilian role plus all the figures I've got and not yet added.

Well done all, a great looking display.

Sorry I didn't have the time to try and contribute anything this year but depending on next years theme will see what I can do.

A bit late to the party, but thanks for sharing the pics, it looks like a great display. Some nicely built and weathered locos and rolling stock.
