Here is some film I found of one of the living history events I attended as a member of the Birmingham Pals living history society.

That's a great clip - thanks for posting it. :good:

The traffic on the adjacent road must have thought that WW3 had broken out! lol

Great video, I was also wondering about the proximity of the traffic, especially with the Vickers blazing away.

Its the A51 from Lichfield to Tamworth so the cars are going quite quickly past us and there is a large earth transverse in the way. What is interesting is that the site is right next to Whittington Barracks but we have never had any issues with the MOD. I have been attending that annual event for 7 years now and I have to say it is one of the most authentic Great war living history events in the UK.

Yes, the Bantam is spot on. :good:

And I won't mention the Lee Enfield No4 (Mk2?) Ooops.

(just gentle leg pulling) cheers
