Re: Buttons at TORM

Myal, checked those, they don't look like them.

Annie, I thought it was nothing but trays of buttons and button sized bits.

I know, I'm not being very helpful...got a head like a sieve with holes in it!

Buttons at TORM

So...does anyone have contact details for them please? They were in the cric...

Re: Leather waistcoat for workmen

I've seen pictures of workmen, but it's apron over normal clothing that I see being worn, not leather waist coats.

If I was ever going to get out of the musket era (and had the time and money to do yet another impression!) This would be it!

There has got to be an idea for a new re-enactment group in there somewhere!

:( I'm quite torn now. Obviously, if a French fusilier of the 1740s cannot wear a moustache, then I should get rid. But then, so many in the groups I'm in have full beard, even some of the government troops have incorrect facial hair. It's a bit narking to know that I'm getting rid of a moustache th...

Once I found that a soldier in the French army (like what I portray) would wear one, I decided to keep it. In the french army it was restricted to Grenadier companies. It was the mark of the Grenadier in some respects when some uniform issues made no diferentiations between fusileer and grendaier c...

Re: Wizards?

In about 1750 an Act was passed against smuggling which, amongst other things, outlawed the wearing of 'any Wizard Mask or other disguise'. Any ideas on what an 18thC wizard mask was like? So, I cannot wear a Wizard mask while smuggling...but that's no prohibition against wearing one while fighting...

There is a type of malt drink (such as Dunns River Mighty Malt) that's derived from unfermented beer type stuff... Don't know whether these recipes are any good, but if not,you can buy the stuff in 330ml cans or bottles for about 60p each (though mostly only in 'efnik' parts of town) http://askthebe...

The Americans...British people really, so I'm presuming they would not bother with facial hair either. And from what I see of portraits, that seems about right. Only it would be...convenient...if some of them followed the French ways, just to annoy the Brits, as it would mean I could keep my moustac...

My uni lot would love that sort of thing...they can't shoot and they need fake bang sticks for hitting each other.
