My New France past

As Christine, who is organising an excellents summer 2009 tour of historic sites of New France, has been kind enough to post some comments I thought I would go back into my Seven Years War past. I started a society 'New France and Old England' in the mid 90s in the UK that was pretty successful - getting quite large too before it eventually dwindled. Here's some pics of me in those days - one with me getting a commission at Fort Carillon. Not that it did me any good!
Anyway as far as Canadian clothing goes the best books and patterns are those by Suzanne Gousse's company Fleur De Lys. Although they are mostly covering the 1740s-60 period they are excellent and thoroughly researched.
