Re: Histrenact

Hello All, Yes I have had some problems with the website and have had to take it offline for the time being. This is also why we have not been able to trade at shows over the winter. The site is being completely redone from scratch and will be fully up and running in the very near future. In the mea...

WWII RAF Officers cap with brass wings and owners name

Been asked a question to which I have no answer..... What value a WWII RAF officers cap with the brass wings as well as the normal ones, superb condition, no marks at all and named owner. All this verified? Looked on ebay and there appears to be one for £220 which seems a lot..... Take care David D.

I am also very aware that if I can do it so can someone else however these software packages are very complicated. I am also currently w...

Sally,

That might be an idea to have a look at as well. As I run everything from here I am not constrained in anyway by ISP's so can do what I like as far as software and services are concerned.

Hmmmmmmmmm have to have a think about that.

Take care

David, I can see how your Histrenact site could potentially be a focus to develop some of my ideas around. It certainly is one of the few places that has a comprehensive listing of all traders available, rather than the select few that most group sites have. Not to be overly critical, but the desig...

Hi David, I do think you're into 'can of worms' territory here and only the larger or more successful traders will be able/or afford to take part. As a long term 'fix' -(and with good possibilities of income from it in the future). I would suggest a multi-period RECRUITMENT site. Now you may want t...

A Reenactment Webshop?

Hi all...... Would people be interested in a place where they can order stuff on-line and pay on-line and have a one-stop location highlighting new things that are available for purchase specifically tailored to us reenactors?

I also found out something about VAT earlier on today as I was talking to the VAT man about problems with the VAT website falling over. Apparently if you file your VAT forms on-line, as I do, there is an additional seven days *after* the file date, in my case this time around 31/01/08, in which you ...

It depends very much on the quality of the mail, and the way it has been treated. I bought one of the first mail shirts made by Armour Class, which was hardened and tempered by them as part of the production process - basically, you heat it carefully and then drop it into an oil bath. As well as ma...

If I was a medieval soldier there is no way in hell I'd entrust my wellbeing to a shirt of butted mail. I find it very hard to accept the stuff would have been used on the field at all. It needs perpetual repair as any regular user of the stuff will attest. Jim, you have mentioned this twice now wh...

Didn't Entwhistle (sp?) or someone similar about ten years ago do a concerto for 27 electric guitars and a bath tub?
