Hi, many of you "know me but for those who do not, Here is my persona

Actually I merge 2 & the one I wear is according to how I feel or the Event

1. Capt, of a Can. Militia Rifle Co, War of 1812 It is" patterned" after an actual Ancestor. I say "patterned" because...
A. Although My Jacket, vest ect, are as close as i can be (taken from an OLD upper torso drawing of him.
B.Lower attire = Here I take "liberties" He was a Scot/Enlish & there is a ref. that a Piper played during "recruitment" & a "parade". So I often wear a KILT or Trews (early 1800s period pattern)
C. Long Arms = A Jaeger Rifle or a Baker Riflle ( he was from a VERY wealthy family in the UK & they "could"have seen to it He could eqip. his unit with "Bakers.
D. My sword is a "Basket Hilt"
E. Side arms = Generic "flintlock" pistol & an "Highlander all Steel" pistol.

2. NWC/HBC Employee- !820-1850s in the PNW.
A. Clothing = According to my "station" in society (upper middle class & position in the NWC/HBC ( upper level) Note- you dressed basicly as you would "back east". If in the field then "field gear"
Yes I do wear a KILT often ( both co.s were head by Highland Scots & posts etc hade pipers + sketches of Kilts out here.)
B.Long arms = My Baker or an English Mortimer Rifle & Shot gun.
C. a Brace of Mortimer Pistols (good doc. on them being carried out here)
D. Sword (a sword was a part of NWC/HBC gear
Here is a pic of me as a NWC/HBC Dressed for "dinner with the Factor"

PC??? But is how I Do it.& I have FUN.
