We had armbands in Leipzig, they did not show up on photos under your collars.

But they did not check for the armbands at all.

Red with little swastikas?
Oh dear haha if they're asking for when I'm arriving and what time I intend to shit then most likely
That organizer is a bloody legend, Hoogstraten best organized event ever.

But yes, this thing is gona be a mess, only reason you will go is because its so big and so many reenactors, but if you will have that much fun, not entirely sure.
Agreed it ran so well! Sensible times for battles, good living history and good down time. Only downside was space. If one tent had gone up in flames the entire camp was a goner

I hope they have one like in Leipzig. You could do those a little higher up your arm, tighten it, and cover it up just fine.

Sounds pretty damn shite, you can't trust a Belgian to organize the alphabet let alone a re-enactment event. String em up I say! Vive la Nation!

If they go on like this, 2015 will be a colossal disaster. Especially if the timetable isn't changed, as Barnsey said, a battle at 8pm is ludicrous.

I'd be very surprised of they change anything about the time-table. They probably have the tickets printed out already.

Shame. I was planning to be pissed out of my face at 8pm ;)
They better give us shit loads of powder to burn then! And have several powder issue points. One per brigade maybe. Else we will be there all day!

Ha. They'll probably just give a minimum due to 'safety' reasons.

I remember 2011 my unit ended up with essentially 1.5kg per man per battle. Boy did we burn some powder that weekend!

At the order "bayonet au canon" we'll fix feathers instead and tickle each other to death!

You may hide a bomb in that moustache.

They've been okay with powder issuing previous years, I believe. But so much has changed. Who knows what might happen.

What winds me up most is the whole VIP thing. These people really haven't given a shit in the past but it'll be a big PR event for them. I can just imagine it now, David Cameron giving a speech as to how all the British soldiers are an inspiration that should be looked upon by today's younger generations. When to be perfectly frank the young generation generally knows sweet FA about Waterloo and the napoleonic wars in general because emphasis is put too much on the world wars, the Romans and the Tudors in British schools

Suns been shining past couple weeks Zac, as a result Britons have been hiding from the new orange orb in the sky and the residents of Somerset have submerged back underwater to their dwellings.
