Great War convoy travels to steam fair

First published in News

A First World War convoy will be travelling from Bovington to the Great Dorset Steam Fair site at Tarrant Hinton.

The crew will be dressed in British Army uniform from the time and the load will be flanked by several other army vehicles in an attempt to recreate an original WWI convoy, the likes of which will never have been seen after 1919. Two McLaren locomotives will pull a Pickfords trailer carrying a 1914 WW1 Holt 75 HP Gun Tractor, which was originally used to tow a field gun.

The vehicle will leave Bovington at 10.30am on Saturday, August 16.

There will also be a steam lorry, a Daimler lorry and a traction wagon.
