Cornwall’s Edge

Event Mount Edgcumbe At War

On the beautiful Rame Peninsula, overlooking key British naval location, the Plymouth Sound and at the most easterly point in Cornwall, an annual celebration of all things military takes place in the idyllic Mount Edgcumbe Country Park. Drawing the summer military season to a close in the south west, Cornwall Area MVT has been meeting here since 2004, until this year over August Bank Holiday and now spanning the following weekend.

The event has gradually increased in size and scope and now features a host of attractions from firepower demonstrations from among others, the Saigon Days Vietnam group with an awesome Howitzer gun, towed behind an impressive Reo, to live entertainment and refreshments both day and night thanks to the 1940s Roadshow. The Dog Company (29th Infantry) re-enactment team came down from Wales while other eras were also covered, from medieval times to the battles between France and England over the territory the Mayflower sailed to from Plymouth.
