Today I have been mostly…

…watching old videos transferred to DVD with a consequent loss of quality and speech synchronisation.

Most of the material I have been watching is based around my English Civil War reenactment.  I have videos dating from BBC programmes in 1980, when I took up the hobby, through to 2016.  Some are of my own society, the English Civil War Society, and some are of the better known Sealed Knot, including footage taken by me as a visitor.

It’s very interesting to see how our representations of uniform and battle tactics have developed over the 36 years that I have been involved in this hobby.   These things develop not only through research, but also the latest “fashionable correct” propaganda. It’s also fun to see how young we all looked in the 1990s!
There is a purpose to my concentration on the English Civil War stuff, which will become clear later this week.
