Just to say that I'd thought that "sod this for a game of soldiers" would translate roughly as "hoc futi quam lud militorium" but I'm sure that there is sombody here who can correct my spelling/latin.
Also on a simmilar note I am led to believe that "sit vis vobiscum" is not dissimmilar to "may the force be with you" for any aspiring medieval jedi out there, but again I feel a correction may be comming on!
Oh but keeping on track with the post an all, as already stated by Fillionious check out the avatar for the Bonivant colours.

"Hoc futui quam lude militorum" was the spelling i had, but seeing as i have enough trouble with English i'm not the best placed to hold an opinion...

You may very well be right on that as my spelling is really bad , but then I think that it's genitic as my father couldnt spell either!

The Company of Orinance wear a quartered red and cream tabard. As a Burgundian unit they ought to wear a St. Andrews Cross somewhere but as a mercenary contingent we wear our Captains livery, I suppose it makes it easier for us to swop sides. I fight for the Honour of His serene Grace Charles Valois, Lord of Ghent and Duke of Burgundy and the gold of whoever will fed me and my kin.

Oh and if a woman comes on the field with a merc outfit that has a Lion Azure as it's banner run away she's weird.

MCS (Medieval Combat Society) Heraldry, is given below, although individual knights wear their own colours.

Devon Medieval Combat Alliance uses a stylised cross, with three bars - one swept up, one straight, one swept down, we're not in livery at the moment, so it'll be either a flag or a small emblem.

Actualy our normal livery is quartlerly red and yellow http://www.company-of-ordinance.org.uk
as can be seen on our web site, and as burdundians we would as standard wear either blue and white halved with a red cross of St Andrew or the cross of st andrew as a white ragged staff with the flint steel and sparks of Burgundy. There are too many variations to choose from so we stick with the colours of the Town we hail from.

Well I am glad that you have cleared that up for me, I guess that Colin has just washed his tabard one too many times in Ye Olde Soape suds. perhaps i will be able to meet you at Tewkesbury, I have been in touch with Colin but I'm attending this and possibly Joust with the Black Maunch as I'm not entirely sure I know enough people to just go along for the craic and the socialising bit.Glad to finally "speak" to someone else from the Company, even if it is to be told off. Bloody typical, no-one comments when I get it right, every-one notices when i get it wrong. Ces't la vie.

The Ormond Household are a very scruffy bunch and the livery they wear is blue and yellow with a double carrick bend.

New Livery for me.

As mercenaries the Company of St Jude all wear their own colours but are recognisable as a unit by a black and white band tied somewhere about their person/kit.
Captains have 2 parts black to 1 white
Other ranks have 2 parts white to 1 black
