I thought that folks maybe interested in what you may see if you wander the English countryside at weekends.

I have added some pictures of our group, Wulfheodenas, having a bit of fun last weekend.

Impressive ! Cool Makes one want to go pillage something or just break things in general blood running hot. Wink Laughing Out Loud ( Well, in period of course and not for real but all you would need is a good movie script and your kits look 1000% better than anything Hollywood could come up with ).

Thank you very much for your comments. The helmets were made by a number of different people -- Thorkil, Dave Roper, Ivor Lawton and Tim Noyes, among others.

We had a really good time at the weekend -- our next gathering will be at Sutton Hoo in July.

You are a nice spectacle and I wish I were somewhere near, although I think seeing you some centuries ago would be bad news (for the population Big Grin )

BTW how many are in your group, for what I 've seen there are a lot of folk and all with very good kits.

Thank you John.

There were 17 of us in the event last weekend (plus 2 friends)-- but we do have about 10 more members not present.

I see that I have posted the same picture twice - tomorrow I will replace the double and add some more.

Hi Paul,

Your pics. are some of the finest on myArmoury in terms of commitment to historical accuracy.

I always make a point to show your pics. to my wife and tell her. "This is an example of a really nice looking historical out-fit" (I don't use the term "kit" when speaking with her) Wink

I always look forward to seeing your pictures. I think you guys have some of the best kit out there. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you again for your comments, gentlemen. Mark with the gash on his head is just showing off -- the wound is fake -- he does it to try and shock the public! It certainly is quite convincing, even when close up.
