Another great fun day with the Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group at the Wales on Wheels event at the National Waterfront Museum Green in Swansea City. We put on our full display including our Victorian prisoner who went down well with the kids for photo shoots. As usual at this event the Penydarren steam locomotive, built in 1803 was out, and jugged up down on it's 100 metre track all day long.
The sun shone on this quaint town of Bridgend in South Wales for their Wartime Bridgend event on Saturday.
Hundreds of re-enactors turned the town into a piece of the 1940s as they celebrated that era and the D-day landings.
A replica of a Spitfire was on display in the town square, and just down the street at the cenotaph, they held a memorial service.
And nearby there was a temporary stage for the afternoon's entertainment including a speech by a lookalike of the great Sir Winston Churchill.
Gazebos lined the streets for the re-enactors to show off their military weapons, uniforms and give information about them.
Two Victorian Policemen with a French Gendarme were patrolling the area in splendid uniforms of that era and were very busy with photo shoots with the public.
The Mayor of Bridgend Cllr. Stuart Baldwin opened the day's event by thanking all re-enactors for their support and the organizers for their hard work on putting on this show in remembrance of those who made it possible for us.

South Wales Police officers and staff put on a fantastic emergency open day at the Western BCU event at the Penlan Leisure Centre in Swansea on Saturday 22nd June 2019.
Over 4000 people passed through the gates to see demonstrations from the three services, Police, Fire, and Ambulance. Also in attendance were the Mountain Rescue Service, the three beautiful Alsatian dogs (K9) with their handlers give an impressive display in their different arena as well.
The Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group brought their Victorian jail which was supported by two Victorian Policemen. This time they had a prisoner played by Andrew MacFetters in the prison who was a big success with the kids for photo shoots. A guest from France was Allen Hill, who was a French Gendarme. Sgt Harris said: "They started queueing at 11 am and we have not stopped since. I reckon about 500 kids and parents have been in that jail."
The mascot race at the end of the day was hilarious. Ten mascots battled it out to be the fastest champion on the 50-meter course.
A big photo shoot at the end of the day with Police officers and volunteers has been the biggest for a Western BCU event.
A massive special day for the Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group as they attended the Northern Divisions South Wales Police Emergency Open Day at the Tonyrefail Leisure Centre grounds. All three services were in attendance including the Army, tractors, a fairground and our mobile jail with two Victorian Policemen. Three thousand nine hundred people had entered the arena by 11 am and continued to grow during the afternoon in the searing heat of the day. The police horses and police dogs display were a big hit with everybody, and the Victorian jail was busy with photoshoots all day long.
Over sixty police officers and police cadets were there to help the big crowds with water in what was declared the hottest day in the UK.
The organizers gathered them all together for a photo shoot to celebrate a great and well-organized event.

A WALK THROUGH HISTORY
The Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Groups sergeant Paul William Harris accompanied by Petty Officer Allen Hill took a walk through history event at Margam Park, South Wales on Sunday.
There they got involved with other re-enactors with their artifacts of the era they were covering, from Neapolitan to WW1. They were invited to have hands-on demonstrations of the weapons used in that period as well.
A lot of effort went into the static displays, which showed how the people lived, cooked, slept, and how they entertained themselves as they got ready for war.
By far the biggest draw was the 41st Foot, Re-enactment Society who fired a cannon along with their long-barreled muskets. Around 12 Napoleonic soldiers were involved in this display, demonstrating life for the soldiers in their encampment.
It was a great and entertaining day for Sgt., Harris and Petty Officer Hill, who said: "The attention to detail on all camps was astonishing."

Skewen Motor Club
Classic Car Event Gnoll Country Park
The weather was just right for the Skewen Motor Club Classic Car Show on Sunday, sunshine all day long. The classic car show at the Knoll Country Park grounds in Neath drew in hundreds of people out for their Sunday afternoons entertainment.
Dozens of classic cars, landrover and motorbikes were on show for the enthusiasts. A fairground kept the kids happy, as did the burger van and ice cream vendors.
A big attraction was the Victorian jail supplied by the Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group. They were kept busy all day long with photoshoots of children in prison, some wearing victorian handcuffs.
Sergeant Paul William Harris said: "This is a beautiful setting to hold such an event in Knoll Park. I have received wonderful comments on our Victorian jail and the uniforms and artifacts of that era."
