Holmfirth turned back the clock again at the weekend.
Thousands flocked to the town’s second annual wartime event, which took place at the Sands Recreation Ground.
Many took the opportunity to step back in time with women dressed to impress in their vintage clothes as scores of men donned military uniforms.
Songs from forces sweetheart Vera Lynn played alongside traditional music as people wandered past vintage displays and wartime vehicles.
Visitors enjoyed sampling typical wartime foods and viewing memorabilia and household items from years gone by.
Entertainment was provided by ‘George Formby’ as well as theatre performers who staged 1940s style music and dancing.
A highlight of the festivities was a fly-past from a Dakota plane to the tune of the First World War lament played on bagpipes.
The lineup for this had to be altered to just one plane due to the weather conditions, which also saw the time of the spectacle shift from just after midday to 3pm.
Another highlight was the first public outing of the recently restored HMS Hero plaque.
It was given to the people of the town in 1942 after they raised over a quarter of a million pounds in a week to adopt the warship.
HMS Hero played a strategic role in liberating one of the Enigma code books from a sinking German U-boat as well as rescuing survivors from other ships.
Sunday’s entertainment included a military parade followed by an outdoor church service organised by a military pastor.
Funds raised will go to several military charities.
Clr Trevor Bellamy from the organising committee said the two-day event has continued to go from strength to strength with a third already being planned for next year.
“We’ve been very fortunate with the weather being fine and have had quite a good turn out,” he said.
“A lot of people have dressed up. Last year we based it on the 100 years since the start of World War One. There’s been a lot of things going on last year and this year to commemorate the war. There has been so much on television on these landmark occasions and it’s captured people’s imaginations.”
