Bath 96

Me and my wife at the first French and Indian war event at the American museum Bath. It was quite a stressful event - first the person bringing the powder only brought enough for about 6 muskets so me and Stewart had to go to the gunshop in the centre of Bath to buy all the powder they had. Also the British had a coat stolen by Indians and decided to attack the French camp. Happy days.

Raiders from New France first impressions

My copy has just arrived. Very good. It's a book that has needed to be written and those involved have done well in putting it into print. The colour illustrations by Adam Hook are skilful
Couriers de good 1730s
with a debt (acknowledged) to the late Francis Back whose research has paved the way.  Plenty of good stuff on New France's military strategies, arms and clothing. Recommended.
