Hi Stefan,

As Gary said this is not a re-enactment event as such. There will be a number of re-enactment groups there on the day with recruitment stands, so if you show up in kit you won't look too out of place ;)

Cheers,

Martin.

Hehehe.... recruitment stands, eh?? Shall we prepare to get assimilated by one of your groups? Anyway.... we could bring this sexy authentical accent of the foreigners.... ;-) 8-)
Well, it will depend on the weather forecast if we'll have enough space for the viking stuff in our luggage. Aer Lingus is rather strict in keeping the weight limits. We'll see.
Say - is the Roman Army still in need of lovage plants?

See you,
Stefan

we are happy to announced the following regarding the fair on Saturday:


Lecture on the Black & Tans in Ireland


Saturday, November 6,, 2010 at the same location, i.e. the Metropole Hotel, MacCurtain Street, Cork City,

There will be 2 lectures . One on the Black and tans and British auxillaries in Ireland during the war of Independence.

lecture 1 by author and historian, Mr McCall
(B&T = Black and Tans) ADRIC.=Auxillaries Division Royal Irish Constabulary
The lecture will be on why they were required, the structure, locations and make up of the ADRIC and will cover some incidents they were involved in. Some individuals will be discussed. It will also distinguish the difference between the B&T's and the ADRIC. The book covers the aforementioned and goes into more detail in other incidents. It is a study of the ADRIC which has taken 4 yrs to complete. No doubt I have not covered everything because of the lack of records but research is ongoing and I have gained more evidence that may result in an updated version. I list all of the companies and their known locations, the details of the officers who lost their lives and reprisals carried out by the ADRIC in revenge. It is a book concentrating on the ADRIC and not the politics of the time. I will attend along with my brother and hopefully I will have a supply of books with me to sell and sign. Erne McCall

lecture 2
Michael Rowley will give a talk on the curragh military cemeteries

The Militaria fair is scheduled for Saturday, November 6,, 2010 at the same location, i.e. the Metropole Hotel, MacCurtain Street, Cork City, the fair will be held in the larger Ballroom venue at the Metropole. Opening hours for the public will be 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Traders can set up displays from 8:00 a.m. on the day, or on Friday evening the 5.th of November from 6.00 pm. to 9.00 p.m.
The fair is designed to bring traders of re-enactment materials and equipment, militaria collectables, all other manner of military themed equipment, , military collectors and the public together for a great fair.

There will be a Militaria auction on the same day November 6th, at the Metropole Hotel, in the nearby Joyce room, beginning at 4 pm. The Joyce room is a few feet from the ballroom. Munster Militaria fairs will be working with Cork Militaria Auctions
on this auction.

It was realy an experience to visit our first event in Ireland. Monica and myself felt more in a museum than in a fair, with all the WW2 stuff you can't find here in Germany. Thanks to the organizers and Mr. McCall for the very interesting lecture on the B&T theme.
And very special thanks to Legion Ireland for the overly warm welcome!! See you next time!
