English Civil war I imagine. Musketeers and they must be royalists....so they lost like the confederates did. But Cromwell's republic didn't last long unlike the American one

Kripes! Duck for cover!
Bill Phillips: It was surprisingly loud!
brilliant shot, especially with the smoke, Bill. i hope the guy in the middle did not block the woman for too long or he probably got one in the back of the head.
Bill Phillips: Ha ha. They move forward to fire whilst the first lot re-load
Great capture on the smoke, Bill!
Bill Phillips: This was about the third attempt!
Great stuff Bill, so photogenic!
Bill Phillips: I wish I had been able to stay longer

You should have been a historian with your pithy observations

Do other countries do silly things like this?
Bill Phillips: I sometimes wonder about that. I have a feeling they don't

I often walk on the Civil War battle site near here, and picture this sort of thing. There is an partly hidden area where the camp followers must have hidden, and where the dead and dying must have been taken. It has an odd atmosphere.
Bill Phillips: There is a church in Bromsgrove where the roundheads used the walls for target practice and you can see where the musket balls hit

Realistic apart from the fact that they would scare nobody.
Bill Phillips: Perhaps that is why the Royalists lost

Its good that there are people who enjoy dressing up and trying to bring history to life. Looks like someone has been vaping nearby.
Bill Phillips: I wish they would ban vaping.
Well timed shot Bill, one way of spending the weekend. I note that Worcester Male Voice Choir are coming to Loughborough on Saturday to join my old choir, Loughborough MVC.in a joint concert, we might go along, I believe they have quite a good reputation.
Bill Phillips: We have seen Worcester male voice choir a few times and they are very good
They were probably after the french.... :-(
Bill Phillips: This is the English Civil war Mary....we were fighting ourselves.....bit like now in a way
Great shot Bill......it certainly looks real!
Bill Phillips: I have to say these re-enactors put a lot of effort into making it authentic
what a great scene of the Musketeers Bill... there is a lot of smoke from their muskets and i hope that there was no shot in the chambers....petersmile
