English Heritage Armada Tour 1988

Hello,

Anybody remember this gem from the past? Two weeks of Elizabethan stinking Camembert across the south coast, a great event.

Would love to hear from some old comrades. I heard some are sadly passed.

1993 I think it was, a good old re-enactment fellow. Generous to the core in my experience.

Thanks Alice,

I know the Gloucesters of old, days of Mark Vance & Co, though I'm sure they are a much different gang now after so long.

Chatting on here is really bringing some memories back!

Cheers,

Your recommendation is solid gold to me, so I'll get the semblence of some clothes put together, and investigate in time for next season.

Somebody already suggested your group, and I must say I like the photos on your website. Much the type of thing I used to do.

May well be in touch soon!

Anyone who may remember the halcyon early days of The White Company & similar groups of the time will be thinkin...
