As well as these features we have our regular look at items of militaria for sale, what've coming up for auction and what made the news in the auction room sales. We head off to Sywell aerodrome to have a look at a fantastic little museum and then reveal how you can take a tour of Ypres yourself. Then there are the latest book reviews, your festival and auction diaries, a reader shows off his collection of bayonets, your letters pages and finally, a competition to win not one, but three different books, from WWI conflict at Arras to armoured vehicles of the Waffen-SS.
