This year the invitation was opened up to include the Victoriana Society as well as the Noarlunga Volunteer Rifles/Adelaide Regiment. Nic and Danee were our volunteer riflemen presenting a drill and musket firing display. Unfortunately, our NCO Bob was unable to attend this year due to illness. We all wish him a speedy recovery. Representing the Victoriana Society, Mandi, Jessie and Lynne attended for the first time. Hopefully next year the word will spread and the event will continue to grow. This year they estimated over 200 guests attended the open day, an amazing achievement.

It looks like a great day. I'm pretty sure I know Jessie and Lynne, so it's a small worldReplyDelete
You probably do know them. They are both members of the Costumer's Guild and Lynne is the president. Sadly, Australia only has a small costuming and reenactment community.Delete
