This is my 26th season of dressing up in silly clothes! I remember Scotty as a callow youth. I started out as a musketeer, have been in the artillery (have been the target of the artillery, but thats a different story!), have had a go at riding with the cavalry (mad!) but for the longest time have been a drummer and lately drum major. Shh, don't tell anybody, but for the first 2 years I was a Royalist!!

I got into reenactment via my chums who were indulging in the perfectly normal passtime of morris dancing. One weekend between bouts of hankies and bells down the pub, they got their ECWS photos out and I exclaimed "er, you're that funny lot who dress up as cavaliers and roundheads!" and the next thing I knew, I was trussed up in stinky wool, crammed in the back of a Morris traveller between two rather 'ripe' pikemen and was carted off to a field in the middle of nowhere, arriving at 3.00am, so it wasn't until the next morning when I emerged from my tent and realised the whole peculiar picture. I was hooked!

Most of the people I joined with have now long since left, but I do have some interesting pictures of ancient re-enactment. However, I have been threatened as the people I have ancient pictures of, also have ancient pictures of me! oops! Still, who wants to look at pictures of a pretty, youthful Jim Bisgood with long hair anyway?

The worst bit of kit I ever wore was a plum velvet polyester doublet affair that was lent to me for my first event. It was well known amongst the regiment so I effectively had a big neon arrow over my head saying NEW RECRUIT!!!! the blue sparks of static off the velvet did provide much needed illumination in the darkness of the tent, however!
