Re: Another Newbie

I am not a member of the 68th, but I can vouch that the 68th are a well respected, high quality group with a solid core of members in the North East. They also do some 18th Century interpretation of Lambton's Regiment.

Re: 'Belgic' Shako

Best way to save money is to try get things right first time if possible....so a re-enactor is not faced with respending to improve an item ( plus it stops less accurate pieces being passed down or sold on and staying in re-enactment .) Often some groups are unaware of accuracy of what they start wi...

Re: Pictoral evidence of women fighting in C14th

Sadly even this might be suspect, I once thought I'd found evidence of women in 17th infantry companies ( and local Historians trotted out accounts of these local 'amazons'.)

Re: Pictoral evidence of women fighting in C14th

Ignoring literary and pictorial evidence for a moment...I suspect that there are as yet no archealogical finds of fighting women amongst Medieval battle site graves.

Re: Raw edges

Not much to add to the above observations. Though an added benefit of greatcoats etc without hems etc is that they dry faster as no water is retained by a hem at the bottom of a garment.

Brit Nap mess tin sets sought

Hi,
Do any re-enactors have any of the British D shaped mess tins ( supplied by military heritage ) that they no longer need and would consider selling ?
