Re: Goldfinch Armoury

He is based at Umberslade Adventure Park, Solihull so you could try calling them (due to data protection I can't share his mobile with you). His website and Facebook page were taken off-line months ago and have not been re-established. I have been in contact via email since then via goldfinch.armour...

Rivets / Brass for a splinted tasses/greaves/arms

Dear All, I have spent a fair amount of time on Google trying to locate brass rivets suitable for attaching 16ga high carbon steel to 4mm hide. Why brass? I prefer the look of brass to steel. However, despite the power of t'interweb, I have drawn a blank. Can anyone point me in the direction of a su...

Re: Cleaning a canvas tent?

Upon seeing your post, I remembered I was looking at getting my tent cleaned at the end of the season, so did some investigating in the South West (Somerset area). Albion Tents are based near me, and so is their sister company Boldscan who do marquees for weddings etc. I figured they wouldnt very-we...

Re: Deborah Lough Costumes?

Nigel, It's been 9 or 10 weeks now since I requested a refund due to non-appearance of the gamby. Despite our many emails, and several promises of a (heque vand even after confirming my address three times); still nothing and no bank transfer either. What do I have to do to get the cash back?! As I ...

A great day out and some seriously dedicated/brave/stubborn people to take the heat in kit and keep going!
The wooden water bottle/carrier I got from you is absolutely brilliant btw!

Later (1110) Norman Shield Construction

My Lords, Ladies and Peasant Folk, I intend to construct a late Norman shield using (as far as possible) authentic components and techniques. In my research I have found an enormous array of Anglo-Saxon/Viking finds, literature, and so on; but pretty much zero for the Norman stuff. In fact there see...

Re: Deborah Lough Costumes?

Hello Nigel,
For some reason my PM's are getting stuck in the outbox. Still no sign of my gamby and the 22nd has been and gone with no updates. Will I ever see it?! Please get back to me. If/when it gets sent, please send me the tracking number.

Kieran.

Thanks

Re: Padded Armour Company - still trading?

Bloody Hell! That was some fast replies! @Nigel - yes, that is correct. November is cool - no rush, just lack of information reminded me of a particularly frustrating plumber I used once, with unhappy consequences. "Once bitten, twice shy" and all that! :thumbup: Worries - all gone now, th...

Padded Armour Company - still trading?

Does anyone know if the padded armour company is still trading? I hope they are still going as the reviews I have seen on here and elsewhere are all positive - and they have my money! I ordered a quartered gamby at Coventry back in March and had a full fitting on the day. Deposit was paid and my che...
