I've a pair of corcoran jump boots which I use for both us airborne and british commandos. I've found loads on the Internet saying that they used the ladder style but this seem...

Re: 14thC Islamic kit

Thanks to everyone so far for the contributions :D I'm seeing a lot of the same point, which are that if you saw someone dressed this way in an English battle then it wouldn't be acceptable, which is perfectly acceptable in itself - as someone else said, there are plenty of mulitperiods to be getti...

Re: Historical novels that aren't utter drivel?

Not sure how accurate these are but I recommend the conqueror series by conn iddulden, really easy reading! I just tend to go into the libary and pick a random book from a random shelf, read what its about unless it's a series, in which case I try to find the first book, and just take them home, fou...

Re: Milanese export harnesses

That's what my tin is, though it's probably not the greatest example ever produced! It has the the same plate as a millanise harness but with only a few subtle folds, my breast has only three folds I believe around the armpits and across the chest. The arms and legs also have the bare minimum of fol...

Hi,

A bit of a silly question, but is there some where i can go on the site to view all the banners that you have? I wanted to order some stuff but i can't remember who it was from, just their banner. I've been refreshing pages but it never seems to appear.

Some thing that has been nagging at me with this, and I am not that sure on this myself, but how different is modern armour compaired to the originals? what i mean is, would an original hand forged brand new 15th cent millanise made at the time be better or worse then say our newer modern reproducti...

I love this thread! Having been reading this from the start, I am only now adding my thoughts, which glyndwr 50 has provoked! I think he is bang on the money with the shooting of the horses. The tin men though? I'm not so sure about, I know that a war bow can penetrate a good breastplate, but its tw...

I have an 8 year old Past Tents large Burgundian and it has never leaked. I get the impression the older tents are the ones to go for, as some have said their build quality went a bit downhill recently. That might be the case then, mine and my mates were both made around the same time, and both lea...

I have a past tents medium bergundian(sp?) which because I had it coloured and what not, with a pavilion cost me about £1.2K, but with hindsight, I would of rather have spent the same with Vic James!! PT, because they produce so much so quickly (from order to collection I think my tent took 3 weeks)...

Dressed to kill, well they are notorious for not replying to you for ages. If you have emailed them, then give them a week, if you still get no reply, email them again, if that still doesn't work, well, you need to ask yourself if you would want to actually give them your money. :roll:
