Absolutely superb photos!!

Thanks mate!
We had a good time that weekend in August. In the night between Friday and Saturday we marched 10 miles, our Bergams on our backs, avoiding main roads, taking shortcuts through fields, hiding from cars and dogs... Then spent 2 days in an old farmhouse, eating period food cooked by the girls!
I uploaded a few other pics here: http://www.wwiireenacting.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=75482&start=352#p991305

This is us at Pickering railway station 17/10/15. I'm badged up for 6DLI,1944 period and it's our first proper event really. This image was taken by a photographer called Ian who kindly said that he would send it on to us. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and met some lovely people.

Good job! Looking good! Only thing I can spot (and it is SO minor) is that your rifle sling has been attached 'upside down' (I can get photos to clarify if you want). But given thats all, it shows what a good job it is. Nicely done! :)

Thanks for the advice and encouragement Ieuan. I've had a look at some images and can see what needs to be done. I'll get that sorted now before I forget :-)

Don't worry, I've made that mistake many times and still do! lol. And I've done this hobby a few years now!

I mean, for a first outing its a damn good job. And there will always be minor things you will get wrong for the whole time you do this hobby. But doing it wrong and learning from it is the best bit. Because we all like learning. :D

If all reenactors looked like that - events would be so much more popular!

Are you sure they are reenactors, that looks like the bloke who told me I couldn't take my bike on the Leeds to Wakefield train...
