Jeep origins to be discussed

On Tuesday, November 1 at 7:00 p.m. at the Walpole Historical Society, 33 West Street, John and Ethel Simeone will discuss the origin of the Jeep, it’s name and uses during WWII.

As reenactors of WWII living history for over 30 years, the Simeones have restored their Willys MB Jeeps and used them at reenactments, air shows, parades, hanger dances, and military veterans events throughout New England. One of the Jeeps was also used in the ABC TV mini-series “The Kennedys of Massachusetts.”
Veterans and audience participation and questions are welcomed.

The Historical Society is looking for information on the Fales Machine Company and the Fales Foundry. If you have any thing, please contact us.
