All just a chapter in that little bit of unpleasantness where the colonial, dissident Brits slung out the Establishment Brits!I can understand and empathise, being a dissident Brit myself!
A friend and I, many years ago, hired out a dozen steady fox-hunting horses to our Sealed Knot boys(English Civil War re-enactors, Royalist Cavaliers versus Cromwell's Puritan Ironsides).
All went well, the horses behaved impeccably, until one boy caught a lick with the flat of a sword that was a lot harder than scripted! He got knocked from the saddle, got up, and pulled the other boy from HIS horse! They then proceeded to beat the snot out of each other in great style, while Charlie and I spent a merry hour catching our horses, which had high-tailed it towards home!
Yeah, I like these re-enactments pretty well!Especially when they get realistic, and there is the occasional spot of claret flying!
