The We’ll Meet Again Festival was held at the Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington – its annual festival of 1940s life. This time it was held over the coronation weekend, with re-enactors in period wartime dress, alongside vintage vehicles, talks and demonstrations.
More than 1,000 people attended across the two days of the event, while more than 100 re-enactors were involved in making it all come together, plus scores of volunteers and helpers behind the scenes.
Among the vehicles on display was a Fairchild Argus aircraft, tanks and other military vehicles.
A statement from the Yorkshire Air Museum team said: “A massive thank you to everyone who came to We'll Meet Again this weekend - not just the 100+ reenactors, but the 1,200+ people who came through the gates across both days to soak up the atmosphere.
"Also a huge pat on the back to all our staff and volunteers for going the extra mile to make it happen. What a weekend! We're now off for a quiet sit down, a cup of tea and a wad.”
