    dont waste you time.

    I went to the Watford fair today, all I can say is its a big waste of time and petrol.

    Its half the size it used to be, entrance fees have gone up and there was no ordnance for sale and no book dealers.

    Unless you live in the immediate area Id save your money and do something more constructive with you time, i wish i had.

    Hi i must admit i too was dissapointed, the cost has been the same for the last 3 months or so , the usual book dealer of which there are at least two were not present,
    There was Chelmsford fair on today which may have clashed .
    Im only 5 miles away and use Watford as a social thing only , since it began ive only bought 1 fuze , but have made many contacts. Dug up were not present today.
    on the medal dealers tables were two stunning groups a DSO and a MC but no ordnance apart from two Grenades made into inkwells , and a couple of ww1 artillery fuzes type 85? , there were also a few trench art cases, but nothing in my line .

    Sorry to hear that you had a bum time.
    Last week at Leeds,i only sold my repro SS stuff and ive put the money to a fuze project im chasing.
    I also missed the `Dug-Up` brothers last week at Leeds?,i assume they were on a dig somewhere out of the country?
    I always buy something off them.

    Better luck next time fellas.

    cheers
