The second Harborough At War show built on the success of the first in 2019, with greatly increased numbers of vehicles, re-enactors and visitors, at the site of an ex-RAF airfield and army vehicle depot. Richard Gunn reports
Harborough At War is a relatively new military spectacle, having only been staged for the first time in 2019. It should have returned for 2020 of course, but… well, we all know what happened to most things planned for last year.
However, after the relatively small scale of the inaugural event, 2021’s gathering grew substantially in size; the 20 re-enactment and living history groups that came to the first one had increased to more than 70 for 2021, and there were also more than 200 military vehicles in attendance.
