Taking an offshoot from Tod's recent thread I found a couple of photos of the NFOE & LW show at Basing House. Not sure who took the photos and can't even remember the date, but I was definitely there!

End of 1999 - September one of those backs is mine and I think the other woman is Dennis. It looks like Toby kneeling

And a site you don't see very often in NFOE these days - Andy B with clothes on..!
Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

Milport B&W.
One of my favourite photos, totally unstaged.
A very weird event, my one and only C18th amphibious landing.
foto by Walter Kerr of Milport
Kirby Hall.
Could have been any of the Kirby Hall events but earlier rather than later.

The milport picture is great I have a colour version it's from left to right Kev,Dave, Simon and Toby. It was a VERY strange event by all accounts, particularly for Simon as he started that day in somerset on holiday and ended it in milport.

As to the other one it is 1999 I think but may not be.

ahhhhhhh such happy days!!!!!
I have tried to get on the NFOE web site but it won't let me until they give me authorisation and no one seems to be responding. Any suggestions?

There's a thread about registration problems on the site.

Apparently they are trying to work on it, and I put a post in saying that you were trying to register, and that you needed enticing :D

Sorry for the tardy reply...

Enticed back in to c18th French re-enactment.

Gibearns - the French shoulder slung cartridge box.
I remember the ones Le Reine had were particularly choice.

2nd hand is good.

All going well I'm off to Bath for my first propper outing with NFOE this century next month.

It'll be interesting to see how things have changed.

It's not been the same since most of the French infantry left.

And of course not to sell DlR short, you guys always made a special impact as your camp was second to none...! :D

right thats it, you've got me. I will discuss with the others in the borg collective and we will have to get to an event. Maybe not this year but we'll see what we can do for next season.

Look out the Borg may be back - and this time the eldest of the Borg children can take the field with dad. The 2nd generation is here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
