Fabulous photographs, love the grey with all four hooves off the ground - stunning!
Thanks! I really need to remember what the name of the event was. It covered loads of different periods including Polish winged lancers, gladiators, vietnam, ww1, ww2, cowboys, English civil war, American civil war, French and Indian war and War of the Roses
I forgot. It also had the hilarious "Mr Punch Vs Mr Hitler". I'll do a separate blog post on that as we saw him again last sunday :)
Interesting photos. I am curious, why are the flagstaffs so short? i will assume that is how short they were for the ECW. Just seems odd to me. Wouldn't that make them unwieldy?
Good question. I don't know if it is correct or not, but both standard bearers were waving and spinning the flags around to taunt the enemy during the demonstrations, which would have been tricky with longer poles. I suspect they are shorter just for show, but I will ask next time we see one
