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:
- Livery Jacket
- Eating Utensils
And add two additional ones more relevant for UK Events:
- Camp furniture
