Tutbury Castle Photography Day
March 17, 2014 in Crewe PS news
“Is there anyone here who isn’t from Crewe?” quipped Kathryn Scorah on meeting yet another of our members on Sunday. We did have a good number there because it is an opportunity to direct the re-enactors if you wish, which is harder to do at a full public event such as the Crich 40’s Days; they are there to be photographed!
There were more photographers than at the October event, but more re-enactors too. They really know their stuff too; I had an amazingly detailed lecture by one of the “Jacobites” of his regalia, including the (imitation) “Brown Bess”, his sword and a particularly fine large dirk, but the least said of that the better!
There were plenty of German soldiers present and although the ones above seemed a little lost they were an impressive lot on the whole.
The next event for photography is in October, though there are events for re-enactors there in the summer (See EVENTS).
