On June 19, 2012, in Story Behind Images, by kvitalij

Week has passed since my previous post, thank you all for waiting, and here is second part of Duncannon Military Show.

If this is your first time on my Photo-Blog, feel free to see the the First part of Duncannon Military show with great Viking warriors, Romans and Irlanda brigade Re-enactors of the Peninsular war.

As for the rest of you I present photos of two days I stayed in Duncannon Fort with big accent on World War 2 and Post WW2 militia show.

WWII was a big thing for the public as one of the most interesting spectacles at the weekend, allied and Axis forces were in full strength.  For a photographer it was great place to be, capturing unique photos during this two fully packed days.

Battle of Allied and Axis forces were the biggest event that people waited for and talked about. Weapons firing on both sides, hand grenade where thrown, and rockets going off, all this was set off at the scene for a major showdown on the Saturday evening. Considering that weather was never on our side I have managed to snap some of the action that took place that evening.

With all the action and battles taking place, people where positive and new how to Smile 🙂

My two days military photo journey comes to an end, and I would like to finish this post with the last image you see below. I hope and I wish that this kids would never had to see the war, use the real weapon. So we could see next generations with smiles and happiness. But to the rest of the fine soldiers who are protecting our lands and piece – GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

But let's keep it this way. Peace No to WAR!

I would like to thank Kieran for bringing me out to Duncannon for this two great action-packed days. To tell you the truth I can’t wait for a next year 🙂

      Hi Blake,

      As long as you mention who the photographer was, even better my site. Please, feel free to use few images.

      Kind regards.

  2. But the stage that you have to bear in mind while disappearing is
    that should your cell bulk in less than the
    herpes simplex virus then you only can disguise yourself of course, if your
    large is bigger than the virus this mass which can be greater than the
    herpes virus will be lowered.
