Fuck. I mean ER.
How the fuck have I been misspelling that?
Oh well, It was 0030 =P

Oh right.

Injuries aren't really common - especially not serious ones - if your group has any idea what they're doing. I really encourage having some body protection too, even a thin aketon is gonna do a lot if you can combine it with maille, and a full gambeson is gonna protect you fine on its own unless some tit hits you in a joint, in which case it'll sting for a while.
I say that, we have a bunch of injured members right now, but only one of them was actually injured by us, ended up with a cut running from his top lip to his nose. Didn't require a trip to the hospital though, and the first aid guys were basically useless.

Worst injury I have is a 5mm long scar on my wrist from a hand-and-a-half sword which was aiming for my head at the same time I was trying to strike. The very slight amount of pain was worth it to have even the faintest scar I can attribute to a sword.

You only need one inexperienced asshole though.
Probably one of the very few old-timers here who hasn't been a regimental leader.

That's why I hate multigroup battles. If you train with someone, you get a mutual trust that the guy swinging a bit of metal at you knows what he's doing and isn't going to do something stupid.
In battles, everyone seems to try and stab you in the groin.

But then I've seen other groups do display combats where they've swung wildly at each other's knees and the backs of their heads/necks.

So it turns out that my Great Grandad was in the Black and Tans, wonder if there's an impression for that so I can further crush the pro-republican lie I've been living my whole life

Fuck my life, I've always despised the Black and Tans, and then something like this happens. To be fair he did defect and become an Irish citizen later, but still...

One of my ancestors was hanged as a luddite, but I never get urges to smash my smartphone up for ruining the sacred tradition of pub arguments.
Tech's awesome.

Not oppressing the Irish is decent too.

The photos I have so far, Im sur emore will surface in a couple days.

 I had my first battle event of the season this week. It was fun meeting all my buds again and being out in the field. I have decided this season although I belong to a mainstream club im going to attempt to be as authentic as I can. I think I was the only person on the federal battalion of 100 or so guys to sleep only in a single wool blanket and who carried all of my gear with me into battle. Its kind of annoying being one of the few guys who cares enough about their impressions to do all of this but it also kind of give me a sence of pride of being the only one. Beyond Authenticity I enjoy the challenge of it.

 My Federal impression so far. I did some experimentation that turned out well of wearing my gear different. Notice how I have my gum blanket tucked into my belt. All in preparation for Pciketts Mill.

 We had an late morning pickett fight scenario. I was more game with trying to convince my officer to let me trade rations across the covered bridge that was just out of shot but sadly to no avail. Both sides were in some steep devil's den rocks rock separated by a river.

Also heres a game of "Find Millander". As a hint im one of the few guys who isn't 12 or out of shape.

WHAT!? You can't let a 12 year old carry a musket!  :o In my reenactments you have to be 15 years minimum to carry a musket to reenactments.
