ANNUAL EXHIBITION AND TRADE FAIR.
The Annual Exhibition was held at The Maltings, Farnham on Sunday, 30 September 2018, in conjunction with the Aldershot Militaria Society, when a varied series of Exhibits from beginners to established experts was displayed by Members. The overall standard of the exhibits made the job of the judges extremely difficult, but the four society Cups were eventually awarded to:
The Duke of York’s Cup for First Place was awarded to Barry Renfrew for "Volunteer Units of South Africa 1800-1914"
The Weston Cup for Second Place was awarded to Tim Withey for "Sealed, Standard and Working Patterns of Uniform Chevrons"
The Peninsula Cup for Third Place was awarded to Steve Hammond for "The Queen’s Westminsters"
The Atkins Cup for a First-Time Exhibitor was awarded to John Murdoch for "The Royal Observer Corps 1925-1995"
The Bill Carman Award for Exhibitors under the age of 21 was awarded to the cadets of 229 Farnham Squadron, Air Training Corps.
In addition, two of our Members who are also Members of the Aldershot Militaria Society, gained Aldershot awards: Clive Elderton, Best in Show, for "Reconnaissance Corps Long Runners" and Derek Tomkins was First in the Uniform and Badges category.
