The likelyhood is quite good actually...I can probably organise something for you.
Might also be a good idea to take the Monday off. It will save people rushing on Sunday afternoon.

Re: Campaign of La Boissiere-Ecole: 4th - 5th September 2010

Yeah I did actually...Talked with him for well over an hour about it. We are trying to see if we can avoid having our events on at the same time to better support each other.

Re: Campaign of La Boissiere-Ecole: 4th - 5th September 2010

We have a couple of things lined up in our minds which range from campaign (tactical) events to tactical siege warfare to peace-time or allied occupation garrisons.

Re: Napoleonic hand to hand rules?

Over here, we have bayonets for historical and authenticity reasons but we avoid hand-to-hand combat principally because it is not historic in the broad sense and also it avoids accidents happening. "Steel is not dangerous but the man who has it between his hands is a danger".

Hi Dan, By all means, please do! Considering that the guy knows very little about Allied garrison life, he's more than willing to listen to ideas and have information which may help so if anyone has got a suggestion or knows people that are interested (even remotely) then by all means spread the wor...

The main purpose of the event would to show a garrisoned occupying force in peace-time rather than trying to get a battle show. The garrison events we do under our French persona are Allied-free and do permit us to get involved more closely with our historical characters and see what an ordinary mil...

Possibilities of organising an 1815 Allied garrison in FR

Hi all, I had a good friend of mine call me last night enquiring what interest would be amongst Allied troops attending a "garrison" weekend set during the 1815 occupation of France? He has in mind of organising this sort of event at the Fort Neuilly fort at Calais for 2010. In the French ...

As a note most field Napoleonic groups frown upon people "promoting" themselves, and like everyone to have started in the ranks. I can confirm this position is the same in France. Groups usually have X amount of reasons to have officers and the like but in general, it is frowned upon. Hav...

Nice!

Are you going to be a general re-enactement group or dedicated living-history group? (Working out whether or not to send a couple of people I know in the area that are looking for a new home).

Cheers,

Marc
