'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
Last Entry - For God's sake look after our people.'

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
I will be there Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
Anyone else about ? I'm always happy to say hello and put names to faces...might be scary for all of us !
Suggested meeting spot stall number A.74 as I am helping on this stall on Saturday ...come and say hello.
I'll be there on Wednesday - it's nice to think that's just a week away...
If I can get out of working that weekend, I'll certainly be there as I spend most of my weekends not far from where the show is held It'll be good to put some faces to the usernames on this site
