The Great Dorset Steam Fair will stage a Great War Special Display at this year’s event, from August 27 to 31.

It is envisaged to be one of the biggest First World War commemorative displays in the UK this year.

The display will be divided into three main areas, the ‘Western Front’, the ‘Home Front’ and an exhibition marquee being shared with the National Traction Engine Trust, which is celebrating its 60th Anniversary.

Exhibits will include a Horse Remount Depot, The Queen’s Own Royal West Kent Regiment Living History Group, The LMS-Patriot Project known as ‘The Unknown Warrior’, steam engines, tractors, field guns, a tank, heavy artillery, cars, motorcycles, lorries, trucks, agricultural demonstrations and much more.

Managing director Martin Oliver says: “With 2014 marking 100 years since the outbreak of the Great War, it is fitting that the Great Dorset Steam Fair marks this special anniversary with our tribute.”
