Slightly out of period, but there was a woman who fought with the Duke of Cumberland as a soldier who lived to be 103. I shall look up her name.

What's the difference between 'The Honourable Company of....' and 'The Worshipful Company of...'?

I don't know the answer by the way, just in case someone thinks there's a prize.

I recommend John Tremelling, of Horses Through History. I can pass the details to him if you wish, he only lives up the Swansea Valley, so not to far from you. He is semi-retired, but something like this may persuade him. PM me if you like.

Out of interest, who gets to play the King/Prince of Wales? Is there some kind of game of chance, or do they play that character at every gig their particular group attends?
Thanks.

*snip* All we're suggesting is that camping facilities are available on site for a little longer than the actual weekend so that re-enactors have the opportunity to stay Thurs-Mon if they wish - makes it more worthwhile for them to come up and they get to see a bit of Scotland whilst they're here. ...

Pity to hear about the flag burning. We heard nothing of it.
Went well from our persective, all positives as previously explained by Guthrie. The weather again could have been better, but what can you do about that?

See you all next year, and hopefully a lot more of you.

Hi all, can anyone tell me what re-enactment group this is?

EDIT, and are there any Germans in the picture? I'm looking particularly at the figure 'below' the door of the darker blue box wagon, stood on the track.

Have you tried looking up the Connelly (my spelling) saddle. It's generaly accepted as 'an authentic' saddle. We made at least two ourselves (very comfy, very secure), and EH have a few.

Or am I on the wrong track?

Click dura europa for example, not very clear though.

Nige FFS fella, just because you're not going doesn't mean the whole event will fall apart.
Just because nobody on this Forum is going dosen't mean nobodys going. How many re-enactors are there, and how many of those come to the LH forums?

Hi,
try this site: http://www.stephen-stratford.co.uk/index.htm
I havent been through it all, but what I've read is very interesting. If he doesn't have what you need, he'll probably have a link. (Certainly does have a link for the VC, and GM's)

Gents,
all very fine ideas, but, a small suggestion.
Why don't you e-mail/PM NTS and let them know your ideas and suggestions? They may thank you for your experienced and informed insights, or they may dismiss them out of hand. My guess will be they'll listen.
