Hi Ian
Succesfully managed to avoid the camera completely except when dressed as a 17thC pikeman............probably just as well!!!
Thoroughly enjoyed the event and thanks again to all the groups involved for making it a pleasant fun day with no "group politics" involved.
Shows it can be done and really nice to do a Jacobite event in an area with so much of the history of those times.
Cheers Mate
Neil

Hi Ian, I presume the photos are the one's in the Culloden album? I like the battle pic at the end. Was the event themed around Culloden? I'd be interested to know how well it went down? The crowd seem to be enjoying themselves in the photos.

Hi Mark,
How did the wedding go? hope it all went well for you and you both had a wonderful time.
The pics of the event are under the Latest Projects link.
Have a look, it was a kind of culloden story, we had quite a bunch of reenactors 65 in total. many of them not doing this period at all every one pulled together and made it quite a show. let me know what you think of the pics?

A Ah found it, I was looking in completely the wrong place, quite impressive, your building yourself a fair sized redcoat army there Ian.You just need to load 'em down with a few bread bags and knapsacks, they look far too comfy as they are.

Not planning to march on London or take over the world are you?

Thanks Ian, the wedding went well and I did have a great time.
