The 2nd Ivan Hirst Memorial Vintage VW Show – 2011

Sunday the 25th of September saw myself, and the other UK vintage Volkswagen fans, heading to the REME museum in Arborfield, near Reading for the second Ivan Hirst memorial VW show.

The Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) and Volkswagen have a long history together, from the end of the Second World War and the intervention of the young British Army officer whose actions changed the future of the fledgling giant of European motoring.
