We are a Surrey based group though several of our members live in East Anglia.
We meet regularly on a Tuesady night from 8.00pm at the Willoughby Arms pub, Willoughby Road , Kingston. Recently several of our members have joined the Medieval Siege Society whose shows we have often been attending over the years.
We also regularly take part in the big medieval bash at Tewsbury .
All new members must pass the initiation test
The group has few if any rules except that there are no rules.(Except
The group suffers little from politics that often effect other reenactment groups. It is up to individuals to get other Troupe members to go to a show with them.
The Captain is elected on the day and is either the most enthusiastic/least enthusiastic or the member who last did the most stupid thing.
Survival on the battlefield is of importance to most members and running away is not frowned on and on many occasions has been actively encouraged.
Changing sides is another valid tactic so keep an eye on the standard.
It is not a usual group policy to kill your friends, this only being reserved for a captain who has failed us badly. (He knows who he was).
