WW1 British cavalry training

Post by spydde »

Lancashire Hussars Training

Yet again we are about to start our training season again. as a result we are running a newbie course alongside the troop training, and are recruiting. We have limited funding, and a number of shows in the North of England for next year, and are negotiating with a number of organisations regarding sponsorship.

The only commitment at this stage is to turn up and be willing to learn (it is helpful to have been on a horse) the sessions are £40 per day, (North of England) once accepted into the troop there is a small amount of depot kit , but then emphasis is on getting your own.

Please , no spammers, or people who just want to spy on us. We have had problems in the past along these lines and will check as best we can. And do pick up pretty quickly on suspects.

We also are gradually working on our ground side of the show, and have group tents and living history display all ongoing projects.

all members are expected to add to the troop and all opinions are listened to - the best ideas have come from within the group

the emphasis is on the drill, the shows, but also the grin factor

pm or ask on here if you want details

Daft question, but why would anyone 'spy' on you?

you would be suprised at what has happened over this season.

there are some weird people around the cavalry scene who seriously need therapy

As in all hobbies the 'odd ' person exceeds the obnoxious level, we have had more than a lifetimes supply of them this year, from people deciding they were in charge of our shows, to people who decided they were in charge of the troop..
to the just plain rude/

been playing this game for nearly 30 years and can honestly say these were exceptionally bad people
even down to setting up false profiles on facebook so they could see where we were so they could turn up an disrupt training

it's still all up in the air regarding shows, but we seem to have about 30 invites for the same weekend in August :0)
armed forces day I gather we have 4 invites, looking at the hat trick for Yorkshire wartime (3 times) in July and are negotiating two shows in the Blackpool area might just sponsor one of them ourselves.
trying hard to get organisers to spread them out a bit,

still chasing independant funding so we can remain free of constraints

good thing is the return invites for everything we did this year
