Thanks Frances

This one:
That's my grandparents' old house on the left - they are buried in the cemetery in front (it used to be the garden of the house). The tall stone on its own is my great-great grandparents

Anyone got any of the gunners on Sunday afternoon? My eldest had his first taste of powder but his friends don't believe him! He crewed 'Gwyniffer' (The Bucks red and black gun) and was working as a handgunner with James Green.

Any pics would be greatly appreciated as he was terribly proud and is now very crestfallen.

I could see my poleaxe but none of me fighting but then I spent most of the battle dead or running away. :cry:

Good to see our livery in the forefront.

Photo 10: Emma Hamilton? That kit doesn't look very Nelson-era! :D
Of course he has a knife. He always has a knife. We all have knives - it's 1183 and we're barbarians.

A father with an evil sense of humour (and a mother who for once didn't notice what he was up to), or so I'm told.

Nice working with you on Sunday Jim, it was just a shame that DR wasn't there to see how big the Woodville block was.
