1600-1800 / Re: Ft Defiance (western NC)

Sadly Ft Defiance's Director, "Becky", lost her battle with cancer.   You could not have asked to meet a sweeter lady and better site director.  She will be sorely missed.

It is getting to be time to start planning the 9th Annual SP Cruise for 2021.  We are considering this one mostly because it is on one of the largest cruise ships in the world, has a new stop for us, and is returning to St Kitts, which we enjoyed.

British and Commonwealth Area / Correct Royal Signals motorcyclist display?
« Last post by ww2biker on July 17, 2019, 07:21:29 AM »
Hi all,

I'm totally new to reenactment so I'll give it a try...

I plan to attend the upcoming Market Garden memorial events in the Netherlands with my Royal Enfield WDCO from '44. In order to look correctly, I have been gathering some gear in the past year.

I now have:
- Battle dress jacket provided with Royal Signals en XXX corps patches
- Dispatch rider breeches
- Dispatch rider boots
- Leather jerkin
- Dispatch rider gauntlets
- Dispatch rider helmet + goggles
- P37 waist belt
- Dispatch rider rubberized coat

I also have an original ww2 Royal Signals field service cap (could not upload photo). This one is dark blue with light blue piping. I am not sure who wore this cap during WW2. Were these only the officers, or did this go with a gala dress, ... or?

Anyway...
Is it appropriate to wear this cap with the aforementioned equipment during a Market Garden memorial?

Cheers,
Roel

Does anyone know of any WWII events in Iowa that wouldn't mind having a War Corespondent hanging about?  :)

I have some good news for any one interested in joining this SP cruise - after a spell of very high booking fares there has been a significant improvement in sale prices on https://www.vacationstogo.com/fastdeal.cfm?deal=13069  back down to $719./pp (from over a thousand) so there must have been some cancellations on this popular cruise. 
Of course always check directly with Royal Caribbean for prices https://www.royalcaribbean.com/  especially if you can use the "50% off second guest" sale or you qualify for the "over 55", veteran, or returning cruiser discounts. 

Again this is on the Adventure of the Seas departing from Ft Lauderdale March 28th, 2020.  By linking reservations we can receive preferred dining seats, meeting rooms, lounges, and even discounts or on board credit.

Hi there,
I am a newcomer here - but not to reenacting.  I wanted to say Hi to all and also let you all know about my store - Marshall's Arsenal - www.marshallsarsenal.com.  I produce a wide variety of replica firearm magazine, pouch fillers, dummy ammo and props for WW1/WW2 era and Post-War era like Vietnam.
Feel free to come take a look.

See you in the forums,

Marshall

Hi!  I'm an old Federal reenactor in Northern Virginia.  I have been asked by the Hartwood Church in Hartwood VA to help with a historic program they are hosting in October.  I'm looking for a few reenactor that would support a one day, individual event to help some real nice folks.

Hartwood Church is northwest of Fredericksburg.  Hooker's grand division concentrated there in November 1862.  Two some cavalry skirmishes were fought there during the Fredericksburg campaign.  It was also used by Federals during Burnside's Mud March.

Drop me a line if you might be interested!

The 8th SP Cruise will be March 28th, 2020 out of Fort Lauderdale, FL.  We will be visiting the "ABC Islands."  Curacao had 14 forts although only 8 seem to be standing today:  https://www.curacao.com/en/stories/history-and-heritage/forts/

Do you guys still recommend this vendor?
Sorry for lateness of reply, but yes. They sell Deepeeka stuff and actually can show you what they have in stock something most other dealers do not do...
