Aren't Carr's being quite clandestine about this one? I think they're trying not to attract too much attention to it as it's a very small do with no camping.

Stephen suggests the house could be a makeshift pub. So soldiers could "buy" beer and food, drink, eat, go to sleep or sing. Women could serve the beer etc. and mend or wash kit.
Someone (Rob) could tell us all about whats happening at Putney.

Couldn't think of a reason to be there though unless trying to get money to Poyer at Pembroke (and failing)

We have 2 3-legged stools and 2 small chests (1 can be sat on) a griddle pan thing and a tripod we could bring as props if needed.

We should be okay for cooking irons (we have the regimental fire dogs and pans here in Bath).

As to the pub idea; it's worth thinking about, although I'm not sure how much of the Putney debates would have got across to Wales in the time. Your stools (as it were) would be most welcome!

Are we likely to be doing any displays or anything? I'm more than happy to do some drumming if it is needed but ifnot I'll prob only bring my ladies kit.

Also, if people are needing somewhere to stay we have access to an empty house in Yate (just north of Bristol) which is in mid decoration but has plenty of space.

We want to drink ale and eat food - any other way would be silly.

Ok, here's a better suggestion:

Abbey and I could get hold of a 36 pint polypin of Summerskills Best and we could all chip in for it.

The retail price is 51.50 but I suspect it might be a little less if I get it from Mr. Beeson direct.

Who fancies it?

We have money and dice that we can bring too.

Also plates, bowls and a terracotta jug if you think we will need them.

We have quite a lot of lavender in the garden, could we use it for anything?


Stephen says don't forget that we will all be driving not camping so there is only so much beer we can drink. What about ginger beer instead?
