IT WAS quite a sight.

Almost 100 tractors in a row snaking their way through mocked up Afghan villages and over Harrier airstrips.

But that’s what happened on Sunday at the Stanta training base near as 93 tractors put on a charity convoy.

Organiser Peter Rudling, from Thetford, said he was inundated with requests to join the convoy.

“We could have had almost 200 tractors there today, it was a great response.

“We’ve had very positive feedback from everyone who came and I think they’d love to come back next year,” he said.

Drivers paid £20 a head to join the queue and it was £5 each to be a passenger.

The proceeds - totalling more than £2700 - were donated to Help for Heroes, the Army Benevolent Fund and SSAFA (Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association).

The convoy travelled nearly 20 miles over the day.
