This one passed to me by The Huntsman. Dates from the infamous Windrush Valley where the battlefield went up (someone give me a year?)

Do a head count - this is the biggest Wardlaw's ever were - one brief, glorious summer....

The year was 1994, The field was in flames, check out thew flammable stubble in this picture.

Shouldn't take too much effort to get the numbers back up to these serried ranks. Shame Rob is wearing gardening gloves though Rolling Eyes

I think the largest turnout may have been Ledbury '95 but I may be wrong (I was very, very drunk at the time).

You must have been. I thought Ledbury was 1992. Or did we bury the chicken at a later one? Either way there is now a housing estate on the campsite (I was there today as a matter of fact).

The chicken funeral was at a later Ledbury. I assume it got dug up when the housing estate was built, I often wonder what the builders made of that!

Hi Huntsman, how ya doin'

First Ledbury was '91. Wardlaws marquee, Uley Old Spot. Second was '95 (Germans, Schnapps, scars on the end of the nose).

God, nostalgia ain't what it used to be.

Ah yes, SK nostalgia - any second now someone will mention either Enfield ("Worst muster ever") or Witney ("Cavalier torched, Roundheads suspected")!

Don't worry Gruff, when I joined in '85 it was the same. I had just missed the best seasons knotting ever, or the one muster I couldn't get to was the one people are still talking about (the one with the firepikes in '86 or'87), and I suspect it will be ever thus.

It was Lansdown for me - the campaign up and down the valley, Shay 'iron-balls' Tablewalker and Fred Wedlock on stage - and I missed it ;(

Well we were gutted that we missed Weston - the miniature train looked like great fun!
