Looks great! And hello Steve! :wave:

PS: can you tell me that you have that pistol back? I meet that icecream-eater next month, and I would like to know if he is armed! :mrgreen:

Don't be scared Peter, I returned the pistol.
A small demonstration made it useless for me :mrgreen: .

I recently had the pistol back to the maker because of changes under British law, and somewhere along the way the firing mechanism got misaligned. Result? I tried to demonstrate to the lovely Mrs Remco what a 'sweet sound' it makes when it goes off and nothing! Just a click. I need to get it sorted.

So nice to see you both, it just added to an amazing weekend.

It was nice to meet you again Steve, and I hope you're not writing to mrs. Remco here in the last video :mrgreen:
It is a festival I recommend to all who can travel to Groenlo, a must see!
Maybe I see more in 2021?

I will write love letters for anyone (for a small fee), but you can rest assured that I only write love letters to one person - and that is Mrs P.

The 'schrijver' is an idea I am trying out because at the moment I cannot go on the battlefield. It seems to have worked out well, as one person pointed out - 'at least you can write in straight lines!'

Excellent re enactment.

Some of the night time scenes look like time travel.

Fantastic effort.

Best wishes,
