Ralph Mitchard - musketeer in Devereux's

Me and my daughter when we were in the ECWS in about '86. Desert boots - seaman's socks and a buff coat mixed with a Kirstie Buckland Monmouth cap and newly authentic tube snapsack - as opposed to the hand bag variety of hessian bags so prevalent up till then. Regimental musket. I did eventually get me some Sarah Juniper shoes.

I still own that very bag. Looks like Farleigh Hungerford castle there.

Wow I was in Sir John Brights and Sir William Wallers. I had Sarah Juniper bucket top boots, very well made by the lady.

Cheers
