As you are all no doubt aware, our glorious leader has outlined some kit improvements/additions he would like to see in order to make us more, well, Dragooney.

How are people getting on with this?

I have plans in motion for Cockers and I'm hoping to get Mr. Fisher to fit a sling on my musket, but I'm not sure how to proceed with the "Hedging Implement" side of things.

Getting hold of a Billhook or Hatchet shouldn't pose too many problems, but how do we carry it? Are there any contemporary holsters in existence?

The glorious leader has kept this one quiet - probably because the idea of Bob, Joe and his mates with billhooks is potentially life threatening. As for obtaining one of these ...... I am sure there are tons still lurking in my Dad's sheds (and I do mean plural). My Grandfather had all forms of hedging implements which Dad took over - anyone fancy a full blown agricultural sythe?

Only if I can have a huge hooded black cloak and skeletal face mask to go with it!

I've already got a billhook and Stephen has a hatchet, bit worried about the handle though, what should it look like?
