Men's bathing suit

Looking for a decent reproduction of the typical Victorian/Edwardian men's bathing suit - ideally the blue/white striped shorts and shirt type

Cheers, Rob

Re: WW1 choc and fags - contents and label sources

If you're after writing kit or full contents, give us a shout - a friend of mine in the Great War Society is doing unbelievably good repros, for the cards the only way I could tell the difference between the original and the repro was by smelling it!

14th Legion contact

Does anyone have an e-mail contact for the 14th Legion/Roman Military Research Society? I can't get the e-mail links on the website to work.

Many thanks, Rob

Re: Royal Naval Division 1914-18?

So, with the centenary fast approaching, I'm interested in getting in on the WW1 act, but as a salty dog/wet fish I'm mostly interested in 'Winston's little army'. Are there any groups portraying the Royal Naval Division of the period? Or failing that, would there be enough interest from others to ...

Re: WW1 Knitting patterns

Bit of confusion there I think, I received a PM from Y.Sobel. Glad you found the answer though - I can still e-mail over a couple of the knitting books i've got if it's of interest

Thanks - I was talking to BSA but their Sidcots are not reproductions of the WW1 type, the owner of the company told me himself they were not based on any original Sidcot suit, hence why i'm currently getting together a number of people to get an accurate one made - surprised no one's bothered befor...

RFC/RNAS/RAF Oxygen Masks and Sidcot suits

Reproduction RFC/RNAS/RAF Aero Oxygen Mask Mk 1 will be available soon - they were used by day bomber crews from 1917 onwards (DH4, DH9, DH9A etc), and possibly by other aircrew - is anyone interested? The reproductions will consist of the mask and the tubing which ran to an oxygen cylinder mounted ...

Recreating an Anti-Zeppelin Home Defence Patrol

This Saturday, me and a friend recreated a typical anti-Zeppelin patrol, using the description from AR Kingsford's 'Night Raiders of the Air' book. Before transferring to 100 Squadron on the Western Front flying FE2b's then Handley Page bombers, he was with 33 Home Defence Squadron flying night figh...

Pegasus Militaria is by far the best - made to order though, but at least you're getting quality.

What Price Glory stuff is made for 'modern' people, the jacket is too long and goes down towards the modern waist ie above the hips - Soldier of Fortune is WPG stuff just imported

Hi everyone, i've found out I can only send two of the patterns by e-mail, but I can burn the third (it's 11mb, but worth it as it is 206 pages long and covers everything you (or at least I) can think of) onto a disc and post it to you, but i'm asking £2 by paypal/cheque for this - I would do it for...

No charge at all, as it's by e-mail all it costs me is time, and even then I can just leave them to upload to an e-mail while I do something else! If you both PM me your e-mail addresses i'll get them sent off to you

WW1 Knitting patterns

I've got three large documents full of WW1 era knitting patterns - gloves, balaclavas, scarves etc. Anyone want me to send them over via e-mail?
