The theme of the display for the weekend focused on the weeks leading up to the Battle of Voronezh. In June of 1942 GD underwent a period of rest and refitting near Orel in preparation for the re-opening of the campaign in Russia.
The group set up in the Manor House at the Avoncroft Museum of Historical Buildings and filled the rooms with displays by our Waffenmeister, Funkers, GD FG, Feldpost station and Stabs section. Outside the units bikes were worked on whilst the Mannschaft underwent basic drill and marching practice.
