Around 30 cars, trucks and tankers were on show at the Military Vehicle Show, which was held on the common on Sunday (September 11).
Visitors also enjoyed various stalls, a bouncy castle and food and drink, with all money raised going to the Royal British Legion.
Organiser Roger Abbott said: “The event is getting bigger and we had a good turn-out with some nice vehicles for people to see.
“The Newport Scouts did the catering and it was a good day. The ration cards where people can collect a minimum of 10 stamps by visiting shops will run until the end of the month, when a winner will be drawn for a birds eye view of Saffron Walden for three people.”
