Try latin for "All flesh is grass" - not sure which Psalm of top of head. No Latin bible only Classical Hebrew which is no use for this - will try and dig up reference so you can look it up for yourself.

Thanks Sophia, but I should have said purely a Latin translation. I reckon it will be something like 'necrosis', but not sure. Qoutation from religious sources, a bit inappropriate for a Pagan like me! :lol:

But not for the medieval archer who you are portraying, I'd say. When I re-enacted Iron Age Celt you never would meet a more dedicated follower of Bel, and I go to Mass an average of twice a week.

Any connection to Sir Robert Welles who captained for Warwick at Losecote Field? He wore the ragged staff there

is it an unofficial rule of WOTR livery that 90% of groups have to include red? ;)

yes, and the other 90% is to be black. :D

Due to a little known statute lobbyed for by the red and black dye sellers league, motto 'you can have any colour as long as it is black and red', first league chief was one Harry Fforde.

Weren't they breifly lancastrian, then mostly yorkist up until Bosworth when they became decisively lancastrian/tudor, then the younger one (william) changed his mind again and supported perkin warbeck and got his head chopped of, or something like that.

But as for the Marquis of Dorset... :lol:

(nb before anybody points out that the cerise is wrong it is, in fact, mulberry which is correct. In actual fact, his standard is so much more garish even than the livery that we are currently fighting for who is going to make it up for next season. It is white and mulberry halved, unicorn rampant against a sunburst in gold, with pinks (the flowers) on the second half of the flag. It is so effete, and we are all in touch with our feminine sides, except me. I have a head start.)

It sounds beautiful and I look forward to seeing it, I'm trying to persuade the maunch to adopt the livery of the Gonzaga family, salmon pink and jade green, as our "away" colours. There is considerable resistance to this though so any outside preasure that you can bring to bear. :wink:

1)Was that surreal, or merely factual?
2) Why were you holding the baby over the keyboard?
3) Is it dry yet?
