G23B. Yes, he does! We think of Gnat as our Mediaeval Daughter Lady L and I so that makes me his potential Mediaeval Father in law! Someone not on the site (not sure how he avoided the camera) you may well remember too - Ray Rees. Got photos when we played with him at Dynevor for a whole week in June but too big to attach and can not PM.

I do remember Ray, last met him at a market a few years' back.

My archer sallet was in his care before I bought it way back when.

Say hello from me when you get the chance.

He was a good lad and enjoyed a twang or two.

Or you could consider The Gloucester Household, who raddle the West Midlands ........

The website is undergoing work but the contact links work.

Howdie Vicky, thanks for mail on FB. Sent a reply doubly quickly. :D

George, how about Blore then, my old mate?

Langley, will you be able to make it? Be nice to meet up; after all, you were a founder member of the Nesquicks :P (Darn, this is catching on too quickly and easily) :lol:

Housewife, we'll be at Old Sarum avec les ponies. Might be able to let young'un have a little ride after hours for the family photo opportunity if you'd like and or the new website that's under construction - looking good.

Weekends are chocka at the moment, I have an interview in Sept which I have to prepare for not to mention the family getting in the way of things. Blore is the weekend directly after it, not sure, will have to check with the pterodactyl and see what she says. Last time I did Blore I got a nasty poke to the groin and not in the nice way either.

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,
Patrick.

Hope you make it - it is after all the 550th Anniversary and also unlikley to be staged in 2010

Some of which are best left unremembered.

Don't think we can make Blore. Would love to meet up. Remember the AGM with the helium balloons? Close as I have ever come to actually weeing myself laughing. " I know a song that will get on your nerves..." and the disapproving looks from the parents, especially when the waitresses brought us more balloons.

Mandylyon - can reccomend the Gloucesters too. Was a member for some time but we were doing too much so something had to give. You will I am sure still recognise some faces.

You are in danger of being courted by so many groups you will end up the same way!

;-) Did the dashing avatar give me away?

Please pass on my regards to Bee.

Who are you both playing with these days, and how do I join in then? You recommended the Wythe Retinue - is this your gang now? It would be nice to have familiar faces around :-)

I may go to Bosworth as a MOP with family in tow. Will you be there?

Rgds,
Pat.

Actually, it was Gregory23b who gave it away... Yes. We are Wythe. I was not part of the original mob but have been around in other groups for that long. I married Anne who is co-captain having moved on from 1471 and Bee joined us.

I sense a gathering of Wolfers here.

Can't work out who's who though due to use of wrong names.

Aha! You spotted my ploy!

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

Indeed. Barry asked for an invite to a very early ECWS living history event that we ran for EH at Warkworth Castle in the early 80s, because he thought we were trying something different - a scots garrison, hearings of a commitee for compounding and sequestration, gentry etc. We really didn't have much of a clue and Barry was of great practical help. Sad loss.
