From Crann Tara

 IN MEMORY OF RICHARD ANSELL

I received the metal masters of the last set of sculpts Richard did for me.

One set is General Montcalm both mounted and dismounted - I have decided that all the sales from this set will be given to his widow Coral. It may not be a lot but I feel it is the least I can do and as this was the last personality he sculpted then it would be good if the figures were a recognition of his work.

They will be in the shop tomorrow £7.50 a set

Hounslow Military Spectacular 2002 French and Indian war (UK)

 This is old  but I just saw it for the first time yesterday. One of my last events. I am doing the commentary but other than that it wasn't anything to do with me. 

Ulster American Folkpark

 Ulster American Folkpark. My favourite place in the UK to reenact the revwar. Here is their Pennsylvania farmhouse and outbuildings.
