Picture of Field Marshal Montgomery at 1940s weekend in the village of Haworth in Yorkshire.
I was over in the village of Haworth this afternoon for their 1940s weekend. The event is held in the village over a Saturday and Sunday early each summer and attracts thousands of visitors to the village in the Worth valley best known for its lasting association with the Bronte sisters.
Many of the visitors to Haworth over this weekend turn up in 1940s costume perhaps as members of the British army, navy or air force others as members of the forces of our allies and some as members of the German forces. Some prefer no uniform at all but dress in the fashion of that era with stockings, frocks and perhaps fur accessories.
I no longer wear any uniform but have one thing in common with the chap in the above photo, we both served in HM Forces. Just in case you could not guess he was at Haworth as Field Marshal Montgomery whose nickname was Monty.
