Sandwich Salutes the 40s


Throughout the 4th, 5th and 6th May a weekend of reenactment, music and stalls celebrating the best of the 40s will be taking place around Sandwich.

The P22 Gunship manned by a crew of 6 and armoured with three 50 calibre Browning machine guns will moor on the River in Sandwich for the weekend. It will be the heart of a weekend of re-enacting the 40s with over 200 experienced re-enactors taking part.  The likes of the Desert Rats, RAF, Red Cross Nurses, Military Police, Home Guard, Land Army Girls,  number 4 Commando Group and more will bring to life scenes including rescuing downed airmen from the Sea and stretchering the wounded to field hospitals.

The reenactors are organised by Simon Todd via Facebook.

It is anticipated that Sandwich Town shops, businesses and groups will take part and will dress in 40s style.

Entertainments over the weekend include free live music on the Quay and in the town centre featuring 40s style singers and dancing.

The event is organised by the Sandwich Rotary Club,  the P22 Trust and Sandwich Community Events Association.

Park and Ride at Discovery Park all three days.  Follow the signs on Sandwich by pass to Discovery Park  for car park E and bus ride to Sandwich.
