We also managed to fit in some target archery and combat training. Thanks to all those that took part, it was a great day, and in our opinion this stuff is the most difficult and authentic 15th C combat in re-enactment. Any kind of score on any of the Key Performance Indicators is something to be proud of🙂

Congratulations also to our six Naseby Newbies, who took part for the first time!

Nodo Firmo, baby.
