And Scotch, fit for the Gods!

Next let's move on to women.

My Wife is Scottish.

She can handle a Enfield with a SMLE!

Welcome aboard, as you can see we're not always dead serious & sometimes we forget to take our meds.

Kevin,
 
That living history event, Is it at Rydale folk museum?  We lived over near Scarborough, so only 20 mins away.
What sort of living history doings is it?
Here on the farm, we have  a half-built Iron -Age round -house.  Sadly it's been that way a few years now!  Never get time to get at it.
I dug up an ancient, (well, 1923 or so) McCormick -Deering binder, and restored it. All new wood and such, so I could cut some wheat for thatching the round -house.
Old binder works a treat, but TIME isn't my friend....Could cry when I think of all the stuff I want to get done...

I know what you mean Richard.. I have a few hobbies and dont get time for them.. so lots of stuff on hold at the moment too..
and the Living History event is in Pickering itself - Its a 1940's weekend.. 

I went a couple of years ago - was fab..


I am doing 1940's Royal Navy.. as I was in the navy.. so just got to adapt my uniform.. :)

I have some Scots ancestry on my Mother's side  they were Montgomerys.
 
Boyd's on this side of the pond at one time made a reproduction M1917 (P17) stock that can be adapted
 
Originals do appear from time to time. 
 
Have a Nice Day

Boyds make nice stocks, I have on on my No5. But be warned their customer service is a bit dodgy.

Bemore specific next time, you lot! Getting folks all excited fer nothing...

(Course, I'd sacrifice a lot to meet the chic in front of the mic in the ad! )
