Organisers Heather Barratt and John Haywood brought their organisational expertise and knowledge of all things 1940s for the first three-day event of its kind in Market Rasen.

Vintage clothing and vehicles from the homefront and those at war filled the area, with a host of displays.

Musical entertainment and a wide selection of food added to the event.
