Next along from the Spitfire was Paul Mayo from the Yorkshire MVT. He brought his GMC and Royal Enfield motorbike, together with some tents and other display items. For Saturday, between the GMC and Spitfire, the display was joined by a blue RAF Jeep.

Next was my part of the display with 'Hope', our GPW, then the Signal Square, followed by 'Jessie'.

There was quite a nice sun set on Friday evening and I grabbed a few pictures with the Spitfire and 'Jessie'.

On Saturday morning, I went for the first of several long walks with my camera to record what was on display. The first circuit was along the military line and round to the classic car field. Later wanders took in the pits and some of the racing. During the lunch break, the 25 pound field gun was escorted out onto the circuit near the tower for a firing demonstration. The Twisters aerobatic team also displayed during both lunch breaks.

There was musical entertainment in the marquee all day with various acts performing along with a best dressed competition for those who turned up in period costume. On Saturday evening, there was a band who played a variety of music and the dance floor was rarely empty.

On Sunday, I went for further tours to get pictures of those who weren't there on Saturday and took in some more racing. Sunday was also the day for the parade laps. Unlike the previous years when the military parade was first thing in the morning, this year it was mid afternoon, and was far less rushed.

Also on Sunday, I managed to get on the top deck of one of the vintage busses to get a panoramic view of the 'RAF 100' display.

All too soon, the weekend was over. Just before the Spitfire was dismantled, the Daisy Belles came over to get a few photos. We started packing around 4pm and finally got away from Croft about 7pm.
