A fleet of military vehicles provided a show of force for visitors at an estate in Cornwall over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Military enthusiasts were in heaven at the event put on at Mount Edgcumbe.

The group uses its resources to rescue military vehicles from the scrapheap and bring them back to life.
The military movers took a reconnaissance around the park in a convoy and were available for people to take a close look at.
No stranger to military activity, nearby Barn Pool saw elements of the US Army 29th Infantry Division depart to take part in Operation Overlord the start of the liberation of Europe in 1944.
Members of the Military Vehicle Trust were on hand to discuss their vehicles and talk about the type of action they would have seen.
