King Edward Puts the Boot In

 

Last Sunday was the Tatton Hall Medieval Fayre with several hundred re-enactors, many of them in full armour, participating in the camp life, stalls and the battle on the field. there was a fine bit of over acting by many of the soldiers, including King Edward here, as they fought themselves to a standstill over an hour in the hot sun. I'm sure that at least a few of them came away from the event with some bruises.

 

The guns provided a fine counter-point to the sounds of battle as they fired away in the background.

It's tempting to use a terrible tabloid style headline here Les, something like, Another Saturday knight brawl ! 'Cept it was on a Sunday so I won't bother, nice pic's Les.
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Frank, appreciate it.
wow.. this is pretty major. that reminds me, just read the other day there was this study that reported a lot of males in the UK have some German genes.
Les Auld: All goes back to when the Saxons came over from northern Europe in the dark ages Ayush, thanks for the comment.
I like the way you've captured these photos- quick shot to capture the "flame" on the canon!
Les Auld: Benefit of burst mode Elizabeth, thanks for the comment.
