Aldham Olde Tyme Rallye 2004

A really friendly rally hosted by the North East Essex Tractor & Engine Club and a good one for the Stationary Engine enthusiast. The last couple of years, the weather has been poor, especially at packing up time but this year we had some rain on Saturday but Sunday was fine and dry. This Rally is also an excellent one for Military enthusiasts, but this year there was not quite so much as some people had not returned from the D Day celebrations however there were a few vehicles proudly displaying there D Day plaques. All in all, an enjoyable weekend. Once again (with a few exceptions) I have tried to photograph engines that were not at the previous two Rallies I have been to this year.
