    Was that at the imperial war museum? Great place to visit if you haven't been.

    Is this of any interest? Leyland ain't too far from Manchester.

    Oh and I joined a Norman reenactment group, because of course I did

    Now to jump back into PCars 2 again, it's been too long that's for sure...

    Why Norman can i ask? I guess you could cross over onto early crusader garb too? My fave would be later middle ages, either a Crecy/Agincourt era pig-faced bascinet, or even later Italian Merc look, with Milanese plate armour and an open face Barbute helmet.

    But if your era is WW2...... Why not do that?

    Well I'd like to say I spent many long hours of deliberation into deciding which group I wanted to join but it was more a case of it being the nearest group to me and they have a group that trains in a park that trains in a meadow pretty much next to my uni. The group is called Historia Normannis and there are groups all over the UK (and a couple in France I believe).

    I'll link to their website https://normannis.co.uk/wp/

    Well my first bit of kit for Normannis is complete, I had some help with putting it together but I did some of the sewing and most of the hemming myself, but this is my tunic in 'Ikea Gravy' brown. For the record hemming a neckline is a real pain in the backside.

    Now I only have the Braies, Hose and Undertunic to do, my belt is in the process of being dyed (So have my hands, this dye isn't going anywhere soon), I also have a pouch to make. Gloves, shoes, and Combat Knife are ordered, Shield and Combat Spear should be being made fairly soon, I know we have the shield wood and spear heads somewhere. Apart from that, I have a bowl and a spoon so I just need a cup and an eating knife and I'll be set. Now I only need to get that done before show season which starts in Spring, whilst having 3 Essays, a seminar portfolio and 2 exams to worry about, so I guess I'm going to busy for a fair while.

    So I received my steel 'combat' spear last weekend, it really is a lovely piece of equipment, it stands at approximately 9 foot 4 inches (around 2.84 metres). It has a steelhead with a blobbed tip and an ash shaft; it is about the same weight as my group head's spear which is a good 2-3 feet shorter. The end result of this is a very long and surprisingly manoeuvrable spear that perfectly compliments my fighting style (which to be put simply is the role of a 'line sniper' where I basically sit back in line fights and wait for someone 3-5 people down the opposing line to leave themselves open and stike them totally by surprise).

    I would upload pictures but I am a little unsure on whether or not I am allowed to as it is basically a weapon, so I will wait for permission before doing so.
