Re: Help with WWI equipment please

Thanks for the responses, have been looking at both of those websites. The trench is at a school in Solihull.

Does anyone have an opinion on the replica Lee Enfields that are sold on the Soldier of Fortune site?

Help with WWI equipment please

Hi, I'm a History teacher and our school are in the process of building WWI trench. I would also like to put together some equipment, in particular a British soldier's uniform. I'm new to this and not a reenacator, so any advice would be greatly recieved eg where to buy what.
Cheers

Re: mid 14th century knight

Re: mid 14th century knight

Thanks Randall that's brilliant. If you could post pictures of your gear when you get a chance, that would be great. I think if I can I'm going to try and portray a knight, just because it's something that the kids will understand and appreciate more I think. It could take a while to get to where I ...

Re: mid 14th century knight

Thanks Randall, that is very helpful. I think for the next two events I'm involved in, I'm just going to have to make do. I'm pretty sure I'll be the only one that is unsatisfied with the result. After that it looks like my main priorities are going to be an Aketon and a Bascinet. I'm going to have ...

Re: mid 14th century knight

Jules, Possibly. If you do pre 1360s than it is very likely. Depending on social group maybe even 1400 plus. A couple questions that might help. What social class and what decade? A good question. Based on what people have said so far and on the little research I've done, I reckon a 1340s knight wo...

mid 14th century knight

Hi folks, I'm a secondary school history teacher and recently helped run a medieval day for our year 7s. I dressed up and did a presentation for them on Knights and medieval warfare. It was a great day and my gear did the trick for the kids, but I realise that compared to the folks on here I looked ...
