    Yeah - my stuff is mainly on my personal thread - but there's a few other pictures on reenactment based posts.

    Fast approaching? Hmm, it's getting soonish, but the British season with regards to WWII doesn't really kick off until late March/early April.

    As for other reenactors - well there's a guycalled ndicki in France who does SAAF as a freelancer but unless any more come out of the woodwork here I think it's just you and me gal.

    Okay - I'll put a picture up here, cause it's rather cool.

    This is me and Valeri trying to clear a stoppage in a PPD34 - a pre-war smg, and rare as rocking horse dung - you'd only ever even see one of these in Russia far less get to make it go ratatatat.

    Or as was actually the case go "Ratata- oh.... Pomoshch! - eta ne rabotayet snova!"

    Fortunately for me though he was a former Soviet army officer (as well as the owner) and could sort it out no problem.

    Hyup, that would be me in full fur and silvers doing 1400 style stuff at Abergavenny...nice to see there are some other re-enactors about and for those of you that haven't dipped their toe in the water yet, it's wonderful-try it on my and every other re-enactor's reccommendation!
    love and blessings,

    Hmm, no fur on me that day! (real fur would just get wrecked out there) - military ushankas are made from 'fish-fur' which is really just wool.

    The greatcoats or 'shinels' seem to have rather a lot of horse-hair in them, and if it's really cold you can wear a telogreika jacket underneath it.

    Yes, as Mia says, it's definitely worth doing, and our lot get to travel a lot as well.

    Depends on what you're after really - I know of a gig (Waltham Abbey) I'm thinking of doing in early May, where part of the plan is to set up a WWII mobile film unit of the All Slavic Anti-Fascist Committee - nary so much as a pointy stick, pair of tights, or codpiece to be seen for that one M'dear!

    Sounds an interesting gig at Rockingham though. I prefer the smaller shows to stuff like Detling. (been there, done that)
