Awesome! I wish everyone could do Authentic camping. But some just lack the care to do so. Feel free to add me anyone.

This is a heads up for my skills DVDs being no longer available very soon. The company who sells these take them off the market if they are not selling over a period of 240 days, mine have not sold over the past 240 days despite the excellent reviews. So if you were thinking of getting any, now is the time!

Muzzle-Loaders and More will be the first to go because it has not sold over the past 244 days. Believe me, I make no profit from these DVDs if you include my time. I could order one myself to keep these going, but frankly that would reduce my earnings to zero and if they are just not selling I don't see the point. 
Regards to all, Keith.

first of members of the 50th heres our group on LHW

and heres the biggy becuase im involved with the planning of the chatham international event
i have discovered just how many units there are in kent/essex/sussex area i order to coordinate the
event in future years
and perhaps to help doing a hypothetical divisional event and i would also like to look
into a series of south eastern regiments "jollies" to france/holland/spain ie book a coach in medway area (or dover and work up)
and pick members from all regiments (NA or non NA) as i wends its way across the county and then take a ferry or eurostar to a small
french or dutch event then come back late evening.

just a idea

The Provincial Marine were a British Colonial Naval force that was employed mainly on transport and Coast guard duties on The Great Lakes, but was also used against the Americans in the Naval Campaign of 1812
Comment by Keith H. Burgess on January 21, 2011 at 2:13

1812 is a little late for me to be able to help much. I think it may depend on the type of campaign you are on. There were obviously militay tents, but I believe that the De La Marine may have used the same as the French soldiers which I believe carried a "tarpaulin" for every 4 men.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Comment by Mark Bradford on January 21, 2011 at 0:18
I am thinking for the War of 1812 period! Our Group is based on the Provisional Marine, athough we are based in the UK.
Comment by Mark Bradford on January 21, 2011 at 0:13
Just a quick question! If you was planning a 'authentic' campsite for a Canadian Naval Impression, what would you include?
