Sadly no, Re-enactors markets don't tend to cater to this period and militaria fairs tend to focus on WW2.

We stopped attending as a group after the great flood: We found it tiring and a lot of hard work and as for the unique micro- climate! I won't miss Kelmarsh, but I will miss Kirby Hall and Stoneleigh.

Re: Crimean Russians

It is something we have been mulling over for some time- the problem is getting suitable guns- I believe that springfields bear a reasonable resemblance to the Russian muskets.
