When: Saturday July 7th, 1 to 4.

Where: Same place as last time. 143 White Swan Road, RR#1, BRANT, ON.

My girlfriendís parents have been nice enough to offer us a good solid lot of land to use, but stress that in using this land, all responsibility for personal actions are that of each participant, that is, if you fall and smash your ankle up, itís your responsibility to be looking where youíre going.

Re-enactors are encouraged to bring FULL uniforms and gears, but to leave would-be weaponry at home, as these exercises will not require live-firing.

This field practice will allow us to further our skill as a unit and also would be a good time for a meet ní greet for the new 101sterís.

Specific outline of the day's events to be posted at a later date, but 101st members can look forward to a custom field manual outlining all the hand signals, communication, formations and etiquette that was introduced on the 9th of June.


ATTENDANCE:

I've also been able to edit the FM's that I've downloaded that had the watermarks on them. I've only been able to do the FM 21-100 Basic Field Manual Soldier's Handbook. It's 262 pages but it have everything in it.

Which ones do you have Matt?

I've also located a scanned book with all the hand signals. I'll send that one off to the two of you and the rest of Easy.
