I couldn't see Griff in that unless I squinted and then subtracted millions of years and added extra youff.

Good lord!

"With mark griffin and richard finch ..."

Whatever happened to 'Vinegar' Fitch, I am in contact with Griff often enough, but what about old Grumpybollocks?

How long ago was that?

The reason I ask is there is a piccy in this months re-enactor of a medieval event that happened this year and the kit does not look like it's got any better.

Grymm, was that taken at plumpton race course?


Spot on Bucket ol'chap, not sure what Brock is up to, last I heard Graham and Sara got involved in medieval donkey walloping stuff, Squidgy is a long serving Kentwellie, Griff is a respectable business man and Fitch is still grumpy. The teeny tiny figure in the background facing t'other way is that nice David Cadle chap (possibly weeing on the fence....nah Dave wouldn't do anything like that.)
My memories of all the 'Plumpton dos' we went to are hazy at best, I blame the cider.

Hmmm, thought as much. Have look at Skirmish at one of the medieval do's and see if you can spot many improvments.

There will be a few people with sticky pants as a result of those shots, of both genders methinks, maybe Griff is the new WOTR gay icon...

He's gone all moist about the gills now.
We'll try to get one or two of his old photos on, and maybe one or two of mine. Mine are from about 15 years ago and do, I'm afraid, involve 'woad' and blankets.

Ok, whats the deal with using a pollaxe to do a "charge for horse"? Surely its far too short to be of any use in such ways?

Zachos, bear in mind that this is from 20-plus years ago and it's a posed photo.
I'm guessing that that minor fault may be older than you.

What Cat said.

It was common to cobble together notions of formation from ECWS drills, Burgundian ordinances and some ahem 'logic'. Some of that kind of thinking still remains.

Unfortunately I see using pollaxes in such a way very often, nowadays as well. I've been told to do it before. Some things haven't come on at all.

Nice when was this


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.
