This event went really well. :) We all had a brilliant time and thankyou so much to all the effort and hard work people put in, it went really well. A bit on the quiet side, but the museum made more than they normally would on a weekend and its been put on the map and we have something to expand on for next year. Thankyou to everyone who turned up (especially Paul Watson who was able to make it, great impression and thanks for the support :) ) and thankyou for all your hard work and effort. It really was a great event! Here's a selection of pictures from the weekend (probably more to come as I know Paul got some crackers!) of both the event during the day....and us re-enactors letting our hair down in the evening privately. ;) If anyone would be interested in joining us next year, please let us know as the event is confirmed to happen next year we are just going to confirm the dates. :) Thanks once again. Joe.

PBI's attempt to teach children British drill. For some us, it had been a long time since we had done it (and for me the first time I had taught anyone it). But it went ok. Thanks alot to Aaron (Pike) for his help.

Also had the HUngarians teaching their drill, eventhough it was harder, they were better teaches and the kids did it better! Representative of something I think.
