Re: Bannockburn 2014

Re: Bannockburn 2014

Bannockburn was a great show. The battle looked great - many people I talked to had been on the saturday and back on the Sunday. When the battles were on the camp was quieter but then MOBBED as soon as the show finished. The desire for information and for historical facts was thoroughly heartening t...
