MRU much prefer the re-enactment of the Corn Act and Window Tax bills which caused mayhem on the streets, Re-enacted now as the G20 riots.
Intend to send the mother-in-law yet again, but she keeps comming back home after the event. still I keep trying! :cry:
I had an oppo in my Section who was in the Sealed Knot, English Civil War re-enactors, come dismiss on a Friday PM he was in the car (Bergan packed with jerkin, doublet, hose, floppy hat and clogs all ready in the boot) and out the Main Gate at Condor last seen heading South to some field where he 'd stand for hours in the middle of a Pike push (Royalist and Parliamentarian Pike Units face to face Pikes in the air and just barging into each other!).
Once all the pushing and shoving was over they got on the piss on home brewed mead or ale with bits of straw in it and ate suckling pig all weekend.
He was saving up for a musket and a wedding, I think the musket was the priority!! :lol:
He did it because a History teacher had really been keen on the ECW and taken his class to a re-enactment.
He always made it back about 5 mins before Monday AM parade. Hated weekend duties and would drip like fook when pinged.
I went to one at Goodrich castle a couple of years ago, they looked like they was having a real good time. I must say the birds with their tits hanging out those low cut frocks did it for me, I could work on that pox stiXjim was on about. :roll: :wink:
