Yesterday with the sun blazing in the sky and beating down on the earth, Mrs PK and myself decided to go to this place called Cattows Farm near Coalville at the incite of a good freind of mine to watch grown men and women play soldiers, sorry re-enact an English Civil War battle, I think the first part was correct. With the ground having more mud than the Somme, it was an interesting day. The battle by the chaps and chapettes of the Sealed Knot was actually rather good and very enjoyable and for them luckily the ground was good to firm, unlike the puddle of mud Mrs PK and I was standing in. Also I got to met a very nice chap and author of The Civil War Chronicles, Michael Arnold. The series follows the exploits of a Captain Stryker during the civil war and I cannot tell you much more than that as I have never read them by I now own his first four books signed by him and I will let you know how there pan out. Might be some good information for a VBCW character too. Anyway his website is www.michael-arnold.net so go check him out. Anyway photos.
