Don't know what is going on.

Do know that as of this morning I cannot pull up any Whiterose sites.

I have moved this topic to the Off-topic Talk forum. Please note the description for this forum: "Discussions of general history and other miscellaneous topics relating to arms and armour that do not specifically fit our other forums."

Thank you.

Regarding the original question: Stephan, welcome to myArmoury. If you are talking about http://www.whiterosearmoury.co.uk/ or their daughter/sister companies http://www.whiteroseapparel.co.uk/linkpage.htm and http://www.whiterosecastings.co.uk/ , then those sites appear to be down. Google's cache for White Rose Armoury suggests the last time it was updated was 2006, and at least one topic from late 2007 on this site indicates difficulty contacting them, so perhaps the company is defunct. I don't know for sure though.

Good luck,
-GLL

I was at a reenactment even back in June and I met a woman who said she worked for White Rose Armoury. Off course it isn't necessarily the same White Rose Armoury...

And of course they could just have let their website kick the bucket. Or the site could just be temporarily down.

As I understand White Rose Armoury discovered by chance that their Website Host had gone down. They are currently trying to sort out a new Host. Which in the UK at this time of year is slightly tricky!

Hi there

In response to the questions regarding White Rose Armoury. Perhaps I may able to help with your enquiries etc. White Rose Armoury has had problems in the past with their website and telephone communications system. This was due to the heavy flooding with occured several months ago up North ,literally flooding their workshop.

As you know the company is run by Dave Hewitt and Steve Lund. They also have various sister companies too. I am currently having a sword made by them which has been organised through a friend (He is also a personal friend of Dave & Steve). My friend has informed me that they are currently working on their website and getting the telephone and matters of comminication sorted out. So, please be rest assured that the company has not perminantly closed down or gone bust.

There is also a sister company called White Rose Forge which is run by Joe Laverack. He is currently the prime sword maker and works alongside both Steve & Dave in their workshop. . His website is still running but communication is through his site organiser Lynne Perlin.

I hope that this infromation clears up any doubts.
