Might interest some folks here, looking at Munk, CaptainAmerica and Duuring in particular, but I guess everyone else will find some cool historical perspective in it.

Wow, that's awesome.

A bit of a topic change here, but I thought you chaps could give me a hand here.

By any chance does anyone have or know where I could get some sort of instruction manual or pattern for making white french infantry pants of the Napoleonic period?

I don't really think the people there truly know what they have been saying: calling an ex-german veteran a hero.
Glad that it is possible to acknowledge that not all german veterans of ww2 are Hard-core Nazis
Probably one of the very few old-timers here who hasn't been a regimental leader.

I have the pattern SOMEWHERE, but you'll have to wait a few days till I get back home.

Ililsa, cool read!

Just got back from Cannon Hall, great event, though weather's been absolute shite today, was lovely yesterday, also bought a backpack from our Cpl Fo, once my gaiters are done being made that pretty much all the standard kit obtained.

I don't know about that pocket though. I've left it away in my trousers.

Back from a three day tournament.

My elbow's grazed, my knee bruised to hell, I'm exhausted and fairly sure none of my muscles are going to work tomorrow morning.
Crowd loved us though, EH organisers loved us, there was awesome atmosphere with the musicians and fool and living history group. Good weekend.

20 minute grand melees are a hell of a thing. So much sweat.
Crawling back to you,
Ever thought of calling when you've had a few? 'cause I always do.
