Suffolk Show visitors will be able to get up close to armed forces hardware next month as the Military Discovery Zone returns.

At this year’s Military Zone, hosted by Wattisham’s 6 Regiment Army Air Corps, visitors can have a go at free activities including a parachute flight swing, climbing wall, noughts and crosses with a military diver in the dive tank, look inside an Apache helicopter cockpit, meet the military dogs, or try mud-moving machinery in the ‘Digger Land’ area hosted by the 23 Para Engineers.
