Re: The Passing of Roger Lankford

This is very sad. I had the privilege of being with him several times, whether in re-enactment or out of it. He was, indeed, a gentleman, a true friend, a great human being.

Rest in peace, Roger!

Re: 2015 Law Commission 'antique' gun proposals

Unfortunately, last weekend, in a 19th century re-enactment event in Italy, two reenactors just died, another had to have an arm amputated, and several MOPs were injured, one of them, a five year old boy, severely, when a musket exploded: http://www.thelocal.it/20150831/two-killed-during-historical-...
