In fact they usually go and water the fighters at set breaks in the fighting. So I agree with Tonw.
The point about having little groups breaking off and some show fights are fine, I think we discussed them up thread, and they are a good idea.
I've done Medieval, Renaissance and modern re-enactments and I will say that I have never seen random wandering water carriers. The discipline shown by the water carriers is absolutely amazing.
Edwin, instead of trolling, could you at least try to suggest somethign sensible?
