Oude Klepper Parade
« on: 29 Aug 2011 at 09:52 »
Hi All
   Once again the Oude Klepper Parade has been run in the Belgian Town of De Haan. This annual event is for veteran and vintage machines dating before 1921. Limited to 60 machines of all makes, traditionally the British make up about one third of the entries which include a strong contingent from the Kent Section of the LDMCC with friends. A number of DVDs and photo compilations have been posted on You Tube in which members of the forum may be interested.   The strange costumes are a tradition with a different theme each year. This year you will see the working class staff of a stately home around the end of the 19th century with the Housekeeper, Governess, Footman , Maid, Chimney sweep, Rat catcher and Bootboy. Start with this year's entry entitled Faces at the Oude Klepper 2011. Several other titles by Gloppertus are linked covering last year's event and our extra adventures around Ypres followed by the Windmill Rally in Holland. Chris.
