Schaffhouse Project

In mid 2014 I was offered the possibility of doing an event with Companye St George. At the time I knew my kit was in a bit of a mess, and rather panicked about my ability to do a good presentation. At that time I created a page to try to get a handle on what I had, what state it was in, and what it was needed. I also tried to have a work-in-progress log in the Masthead blog, but that has rather fallen apart. I will come back to the idea though, and document here over the next few days the state of my kit, which is now coming together reasonably again.

I will use the categories that the Companye’s hand book uses, so that I can keep aligned with the original document and judge my progress. Of course kit for re-enactment is very much like painting a bridge – as you approach the notional end, you realise that you have to go back and start at the other end because so much time has passed.

The categories I will use are:

  • Hat
  • Shirt
  • Braies
  • Doublet
  • Hose
  • Livery Jacket
  • Hood
  • Shoes
  • Belt
  • Purse
  • Cloak
  • Livery
  • Knife
  • Eating Utensils
  • Bedding
  • Armour
  • Weapons
  • Washing
  • Badges

And add two additional ones more relevant for UK Events:

  • Tentage
  • Camp furniture
