Our Latest Purchase...

Salvete Omnes!

Given the way recent re-enactment seasons have been going, we've decided bite the bullet and depict a more appropriate military group...

I think this far more suited to the Irish summer :evil:

We wpuld have to add a Corvus to it 8-)
"The Kaiser knows the Munsters,
by the Shamrock on their caps,
And the famous Bengal Tiger, ever ready for a scrap,
And all his big battalions, Prussian Guards and grenadiers,
Fear to face the flashing bayonets of the Munster Fusiliers."

Go bua

Actually, if we did actually buy a trireme I bet we'd get great use out of it, even if we bought a bloody rubber dingy we'd get more use out of it than our boots :D
