About to go back to work from holidays and about to be very busy indeed readying for another deployment. All my gear is packed up and I'll be gone for 6 months so no living history for me anytime soon.

Hello To all, this is going to be a diary of my attempt to build what I will hope at the end be a six foot long WW1 male tank. That I will be able to use for my displays.
Problems well never done anything like this before. The plans I am working with are basic at best, and I will have to build it such a way as it will have to come apart easily for transport. So come along for the build and see what happens

This is my first time writing a blog on LHW. Any fellow re-enactors who read it are welcome to express their views or ask about it. So here goes (with my fingers crossed :)):
In this age, military historical re-enactment is imperative for me. This form of martial activity provides a means of escapade from the pressure, troubles and negativity of the contemporary…Continue

Did a small promo this weekend for our upcoming Pirate Faire in Englewood. Did not go over too bad,.... just a bit difficult trying to promo a show at an event [May Daze] that is done on the water exclusively [the bands are on a barge anchored off one of the islands and the people are surrounding the barge in boats/floaties/rafts/canoes]. We did what we could waving at people and such as we arrived on the taxi-boat,..got onto the "stage" and bantered with the people a bit,... told them…Continue

Due to commitments with work and study (I get 8 weeks shore time a year) I have been unable to commit the time and effort to my wonderful hobby since leaving the UK in 2010. The plus side of this is I'm being educated in the industry basics as a deck watch keeper and so I am currently learning how to splice rob, handle canvas sewing, tie knots, make a boatswains chair, work out headings true from compass, tack with swell and sea, weigh anchor etc. I'm wondering if there is demand for some…Continue

Well, so far this year's looking good - we won't be as busy as some of the bigger units, but that's fine with me. So long as we have fun, it's all good.
It's unbelievable how much organising things take, but at the end of the day it's all for a good reason.

Haven't been around for a while. Oops.
I'm still trying to figure my way around here - it's not nearly as intuitive or easy to use as the other blogging/social network platforms I'm used to.
My car's out of action for a bit - I think it needs a new battery (considering the car's getting on in years and I think the battery is the original, it's not bad going!) which means I can't get out anywhere not walking distance. Or London - and that's expensive, although I'm going up in…Continue
