Milton, the liquid used to clean babies' bottles, is very good at treating mould on tents. We've used it successfully several times.

Re: anglo-saxon sun hat?

Like Neil, I frequently use a linen hood. They are very effective.

Some of our members have straw hats. They got them at the market at Tewkesbury, where there are usually several traders selling them in a variety of styles.
