Aldershot Army Show 2005

Armchair General

Crowds of people had gathered on this day, and there were plenty of attractions for young and old. Considering that it only cost £5.00 for the entrance fee, the show was very good value for money with all the available amusements and facilities.

There was plenty of food and drink available on this rather overcast day, there was even a small bar for those who needed to partake of something stiffer.
