Re: Carpenters, wheelwrights etc. wanted

More of a Covered Waggon than a coach

Are you anything to do with the film?

Because they have been planning to make one.

If not, I would get in touch - there seems to be no point in there being two in existance.

Re: Carpenters, wheelwrights etc. wanted

Medieval Coach?

Not sure if these were around until the late Elizabethan times.

Would love to learn that is not true. Do you have any pictures refs etc?

Hi All
I think this is an issue that the NMTF branch should consider. Maybe traders should be "taxed" at each event to provide the service. After all it would be unfair for only a few traders to ante-up and all the others benefit at no cost to themselves.

Over to you Pete the Pong.

Hi Martin
It is a good idea and I include it in my "event organisers guide" along with other suggestions such as GIANTS. But surely it should be the organisers who do this. That's what we pay our pitch fees for.

Military Odyssey

Just got back. Very poor attendance by the public and there seemed to be fewer non- WW1/2 types there as well.

Thinking of not trading there next year.

Anyone any experience of what trading condition were like at Herstmonceaux?
