Miltary Through the ages Part 2

We ventured out to Jamestown, VA learn a bit about our past military and how they lived. Miles, a family friend and sailing buddy of John's was there with his group. The Sunday we went to see this event, they lined up in Chronological order "down through the ages" and were presented to the audience! Arrick, Ian and myself had great seats and got to get close up views as they lined up to be presented! (disclaimer: I am afraid I got some of these out of order, sorry!)
some of the participants and the audience chat it up and look warily at one another!
I wonder what this Knight was thinking..."I really have to pee!".

this looks like a lively bunch!!! The participants I mean....
Miles' group. Miles is the gentleman with the white goblet symbol on his chest...
These guys are telling the young boys, "Yes, this is a fake British accent, don't judge me!".
The drummer drums the marching cadence for the participants to come forth and be presented...Military through the ages!!!
Here comes the English!!!! there goes the neighborhood!!

"Dude, I think your helmet is too big for me!"

"M'lady, I must not walk any faster for fear I chafe".

Fabulous costumes and adornments! I love the idea of the walk of history and it looks like a great way to spend a day with the boys. I'm gathering some things for our trip today and looking forward to seeing you soon! Big hugs!

Hmmmm...it seems to me you went on an interesting vacation involving fleece, a Victorian mansion, a baloon and a lot of laughter. When are we going to see some pictures!?!
