Yep, I did. I dont remember who ended up with it after me, but I bet it's still out there somewhere.
Wow, Einsiedler and davidmc62 have fairly similar Avatars. Einsiedlers picture does sort of resemble his avatar, must be the mustache and sideburns. How about yourself Mr. davidmc62 ?
<lingo>We shore did, Pard, we shore did</lingo> You'd laugh for days if I posted my outfit from back then. And just for grins, I would, too; except that they aren't available nowadays. Everybody's got to start somewhere.
You both posed?
A couple weeks ago...
Well I didn’t! LOL! Dunno about David!
Saw a church sign that said "No two people are alike and they're both grateful".
That's me as Battalion Sgt. Major in December 2002 (back, left). Battalion Staff of the 1st Arkansas Battalion, CSA, at the re-enactment of the Battle of Prairie Grove, Ark.
Musket is a 3-band Pattern 1853 Enfield Rifle, .577 caliber Euroarms (.58 cal.)
It looks like y'all took it literally when the camera man said "freeze".
Nice photo, SgtMaj65. It looks like a period photo with that sepia tone!
This is Scuhyler's Company, our F&I unit, part of 2nd albany county militia, here at Fort Stanwick in Rome N.Y. I'm wearing the Scottish bonnet, historically correctly out of uniform.
Being as how you're up near Arkansas, do y'all ever re-enact the Battle of Pea Ridge? If so do y'all have a character playing Gen. Ben McCulloch in his Black Velvet "fighting suit"?
One of our visits to Fort de Chartres as a unit. I'm the very old Grenadier.
Some talk of Alexander
Some talk of Hercules
Of Hector and Lysander
And such great names as these
Do you prefer that or
We’re old soldiers of the king
The kings own reg-heg-u-lars
You all look great.
However at my age, I am trying to get us to form an Invalid company. If you look at the Morier Paintings, the only soldier smiling is the one representing the Invalid Company.
1812 fun with cannon on Lake Ontario.
I've really been enjoying this thread. Somehow through these pictures it seems we've become "closer", I guess you'd call it. Would that be the right word? Instead of a few younger smart mouths and know-it-alls , it seems most of us are "learned older men"' ( and women) who enjoy the same hobby. There are still a few members that I'm curious about though. There's a couple of more replies needed to round out this thread. Anyway thats the way i feel and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I'm not in the learned category, I'm in the learning.
