    Wanted: Military vehicles for display at the Welshpool 1940s Weekend
    Planning is underway for Welshpool 1940s weekend 2019.  So get yourselves ready to transport yourself back to the 1940s and imagine you are in a small town were evacuated children are arriving from the major industrial towns of the North West, soldiers are going back to barracks after being on leave, aircrew are heading off to airfields of Shropshire. So in the words of the song “Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag, and smile, smile, smile.”
