After the fun and games at Stratton, I thought it would be worth applying for an RCA certificate. This was dead easy, and if fellow shooty types feel the need, here is the address and details

Send a copy of BOTH SIDES of your Explosives certificate (by fax or post) with a covering letter, to

Explosives Licensing
1.2 Redgrave Court
Merton Road
Bootle
Merseyside
L20 7HS


FAX. 0151 951 3891
TEL. 0151 951 3775

the certificate took about 8 days to arrive (I sent my details by fax) and was FREE. Very Happy

Sounds like a very sensible idea, given the way things are going.

This is a good shout and sounds a lot easier than I had been led to believe.

What did you include in your covering letter - just a request for an RCA?

With the fax of the explosives certificate, I sent a covering note explaining I was a re-enactor who had been advised that it would be worth getting an RCA. Also I included my contact 'phone number and home address (so they knew where to send it).

Might be worth giving them a ring beforehand in case you get the 're-enactors don't need them' arguement which I have heard has happened to others.
