Stepping back to war era
Published at 16:11, Tuesday, 17 July 2012
WHILE Ulverston is noted for it’s annual Dickensian Festival the people of Ingleton like to turn the clock back to the 1940s.
The Operation Home Guard saw the streets filled with soldiers, military vehicles and the civilian fashions of the 1940s.
To see more of the same you can check out the vintage army trucks, Jeeps and motorcycles at the Cumbria Steam Gathering at Cark on July 28 or 29.
There is also a major 1940s weekend at Lytham on August 18 and 19, including a display in the Lytham Heritage Centre.
