Very nice bloke, has all the kit, saw him at Heckington country fair last year.

You know it's pathetic that i've had portable forges for 12 years, first for 17thC and more recently for medieval (speculative design) and hardly any photos :oops: Used to take it to berkeley each year, but stopped a couple of years back. I'll have to get my medieval one out soon.

Should i drag it out for Eastnor Jon?

you'll be wanting Sebastian Drost he's get 15th kit and most defiantly has the skill,
but you will have to get him over from the Netherlands any thing he makes will be the best
he's just done our new gun, fire welded and forged she's a beauty

I'm trying to put one together at the moment (along with about 15 other things). Please do bring yours out Matt (in case I haven't finished mine in time), my raising isn't up to much but that is what practice is for eh!

Vulcan (BNF Fr. 143, fol. 148), c. 1496-1498


Karen, many thanks, I have only seen that as the man cut out from the rest of teh background, but his breechless *rse is a treat, not sure if that is to do with the stroy of Vulcan or a comment on clothign options of the time.

dont think I would wear that at an event, to much chance of being arested or at the bootcamp recently frostbite would have been the main problem.
thanx for the links to some excelent pictures.

Very good set up have the Ferrers (ferrous???)

Always handy when you have to sidle shamefacedly up to them & say "please sir, can you put this back together 'cos i've got another scrap tomorrow...?" :oops:

I've only shown Roger the pictures of him and the one of the Gothic suit he made (think it was Phil Allens?), have to get him in front of a computer and show him the rest some time.

Reached the highest price for a modern replica at the time if i remember rightly. I've got photos of it after restoration, and it was very nice, and of course Norton had the moulds so i've worn the polyurethane version a few times.

I see you've got your site up and running now, looks very neat. As soon as i get enough time i'll get mine sorted out! :oops:

Yes, a fine bit of work it was. And His Grace looked very dainty in it.

My feckin' breastplate you mean. Mr Davey still calls me 'clang!'

Never put a Nigel Clough breastolate in front of the KO is what i have learnt. However at hardened 4.5mm thick the new one might turn shot.... not that I'm going to be trying it.

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.
