Someone who was a pioneer of interest in the French and Indian war was British military historian CCP Lawson. I imagine he was an influence on Ron Embleton. He did a lot of colour pictures of Rangers and the 60th and so on - I can't find any so if you have any send them to me and I'll put them up. Here is his Regiment de la Reine.

When I started off reenacting the F&I in this country I was lucky enough to recruit people who had already years of experience recreating Indians privately. Once they were reassured that it was going to be done well they soon brought in their friends. Here's a few old photos Sue uncovered today from an old publicity folder. They are Greg (b/w), Chikala (colour) and me with Penny in front of the wigwam and the two head shots Bob and Span.

Scott on his blog did a piece on this 1804 battle between Tinglit and Russians in Alaska. I'd totally forgotten about this battle - I think CDV's RTS 'American Conquest' had this theatre included. The video is a nice introduction to the location and battle.

If you want to see more of the Czech SYW scene then these pictures of a recent event at Terezin fortress are interesting
