Awww.... just for David? They're the ones we wanted - they're lush :)

Mind you, those ones with smarties in are also equally good for dunking, as we found out at the weekend :D

Our group has just taken out insurance with John Hughes that covers have-a-go archery - he's very helpful, and certainly worth talking to.

I know this is dragging up a fairly old post, but are there any plans to upload some info about female clothing on your site? The other stuff up there looks great, but I'm trying to find out more about female outfits. Any pointers on where to look would be great!

Thanks :D

The Early Medieval Alliance uses blue sashes to indicate non-combatants, and we're shortly going to be starting a group for registered first-aiders, who will have their own tabards. (Incid...

I think the responsibility for safety on the field rests with both water-carriers to b...
