Off for a night out on the town? But, surely you've forgotten your musket!

Did they have little watches by the 1750s?

My musket was stuck in another county due to storage and transport issues.
I still got to fire pistols, a blunderbuss or two and a swivel gun though :)

Possibly- I'm too busy gathering all the little odds and sods that are useful/essential for running a flintlock before I get onto fripperies like watches :)

Hi Phil,

I may take you up on your offer and take your musket off to France next month (I put it on my Euro Firearms Pass just in case) to shoot the hapless minions of the deranged Corsican tyrant.
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

First pic I ahve seen its bloody nice actually
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.

Thanks- something that only a gent would notice ;)

Greatcoat- that coat alone already weighs more than my mailshirt and is warmer than my aketon! If I went for one it'd be a leather one anyway.

From there as they do an XXL tricorn to fit my enormous horse-sized noggin. I could spend a fortune on that website and the shop is even worse...

Tis true- the shirts are not bang on accurate, but I reckon that if it is visible then the tricorn has done its job with the ladies, or the spadroon is about to be used in earnest with the fellas ;)
