Perhaps he wasn't name calling... there isn't a posessive apostrophe... so perhaps it's a device called a 'twats cannon' used by a bloke called Tim.

I dunno about stuff after 1100 so there may wll be such a device... along with a 'tit mangonel' and a 'cleft ram'

no point in changing it because of merkinsbrains quote now anyway. ever helpful.



and thank you Merkinbrain. you are of course fully entitled to have an opinion on me due to the long personal conversation you sent your other half to have with me arn't you......... foo'. so you going to keep stalking me here because you didn't have the balls to even talk to me in person then?

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.

Had a great weekend at Kelmarsh, really nice atmosphere and we all found that the MOP's were really interested and full of good questions for us.

Heres a selection of my pics, more to follow as I get through them...

OOooooooohhhh, it's when I see pics like this when I really begin to hate living in the states. We don't have jack over here for reenactment (except on the east coast for Revolutionary and Civil wars, blah), and the kits mostly suck big green donkey.....well, you know.....
I see kits for everything ranging from Romano all the way into WWII in those pictures. Nice job everyone, and thanks for making me so freakin' jealous!

None of the ideas expressed above are really mine. I get them from Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.

Greg G, have you tried contacting some of the groups via armour archive, quite a few of them turned up for hastings last year.

Nigel - Unfortunately we are moving next Spring, so a trip next year is not possible. BUT 'tis a thought for 2009 as we were planning on flying over then anyway!!!

gregory23b - Thanks for the tip. Yeah, I have been in contact with a couple of the groups that frequent Armour Archive, but the closest one is over 700 miles from me.

I need to post pics of my Hospitaller kit (1206AD) and let you guys rip me a new one telling me what all is wrong, hehe. I have researched it over two years time before creating it, so in my wee little mind it should be fairly correct. <famous last words> :lol:

Just had this website pointed out to me:

Has a very nice video, and a number of pictures - including a lovely one of myself and my Vickers and some random children in the WW1 trench! :P
