There was a wonderful chap in NFOE called Dan from 'up north' who made the most spendid shoes, hand forged nails the works and each pair bespoke made. Not sure whether he still does it but try asking some one in the group, I think he was with the county militia on the English ( spits on ground) side!!!

What ever happened to La Reine?

we still exsist as a group but moved on to 15th century. there are plans to to do some events in the future. The group kit sits in my loft gathering dust for now. We felt that we needed a new challenge so we started again researching etc but we'll be back -maybe not this year but one day!!! How goes things in NFOE?

Tall balding Scots bloke, we might have met at Kirby Hall in '97.

Is there a website for the group?

In which case yes I think I know who you are, I seem to remember that you did an event with us some years ago.
Are you the guy who lost his shot gun license?

There's a push at the moment from some of the old Franco-Canadian groups to re-invigerate that side of things with NFOE.

I bumped in to Dave at the re-enacters market a couple of years ago, but he said then that he'd had enough of the period. Well, for the work and effort put in by de la Reine I would certainly love to see them form up again on the field.

One of the highlights (apart from the tacticals in Usk - and the Bison farm) was when there were 30 white coats on the field at Basing for the Heights of Abraham enactment - a truly choice site to see.

I spoke to Alison briefly last year and she said they were moving up to Inverness - any idea how that went?

Cheers,
Andy

I'm pleased you all rememer the borg!!!! I was going to mention it in my last post, but wasn't sure anuone would understand me.

Andy - Dave and Ali are in Inverness and loving every minute of it, lots of mountian biking in summer and skiing in winter - we spent Easter with them and jad a fab time - I will pass on regards from you. In true Borg style though the group remains faithful- as we have moved into their house and so the collective survives!!!!!

Tod -I think it was you who bought my musket some yearsback - in colchester - is it behaving ?
Those days of 30 white coats wee splendid and much missed in some ways, although the kti repaira and packing the van are not!!!! Basing was a great event, although the old days of Bath nad the Kriby Halss with bread ovens and ditches were equally grand.
Does our camp site in the woods at Bath still exist or have they started building yet? If it's still there then beware we may surprise you all and turn up one day - just when your least expecting it.!!!!
RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely number one!

Mary, have you contact details for Dave? I thought he might want to come and play with my group for a while.

Mary, said musket is now just outside Inverness as I sold it on and a few years excellent use. It used to scare the hell out of any one close. I think they thought I was carrying a cannon with a stock. :wink:
