Military Odyssey

August 26-28 at the Kent Showground, Detling, Maidstone, ME14 3JF

Military Odyssey covers 2,000 years of history and conflict.

There will be numerous multi-period arena events and of course, battlefield re-enactments. See ancient history come alive with arena battles between Saxons and Vikings with lots of sword swinging, shield-bashing action.

Groups representing the Napoleonic and Victorian eras will also be there and Southern Skirmish will be bringing the American Civil War to us.

There will be plenty of World War Two displays and major battles with tanks, vehicles and artillery. This year, anyone holding a ND MOD 90 ID card is welcome for free on the Monday. Bruce Crompton from the TV series Combat Dealers has confirmed he will be at the event this year so you can come along have a chat or have a selfie; he will be available at the Chelmsford Militaria pitch on A51 and B51.
