2013 Season YEARBOOK


NORTHERN FORTIES RE-ENACTMENT GROUP

2013 YEARBOOK Foreword by Wayne Stokes, Chairman The end of another year, and one – thankfully – much drier than 2012 as far as the weather was concerned. We had a fairly good summer this year with some decent temperatures, although rain and wind did make their presence known and flooded the tent of Alan Taylor’s family at Cornbury Park, whilst the wind ripped Mark Craig’s tent open, forcing his premature evacuation from Pickering. Nevertheless, we had a cracking season where Northern Forties excelled itself. We were the largest group in attendance at Cleethorpes, Thorpe Camp and Brighouse – three events so successful that we have been invited back again for 2014. We also attended several events in aid of charity, helping to raise money for the British Legion and Help for Heroes amongst others.

Foreword by Mark Anthony Craig, Secretary This year’s album has been even more difficult and timeconsuming to put together as too many of our members are having too good a time at events to bother to take photographs. However, some do and their efforts are produced here as a record of our group’s achievements during the last year. As usual, I have tried to make sure that every member is represented. If members only come to a handful of events, it is inevitable that there will be less photos of them available. This is one of the reasons why we keep trying to encourage our members to attend as many events as they can – and to bring cameras with them.

I hope you enjoy this Yearbook as in previous years, and that it brings back more recent memories of some of the fun we have had together during 2012.

In addition to the usual events in 2013, our members were asked to assist with several television/film productions ...... although we were only able to assist with three. Again, photos from these are rare as – certainly in the case of the film “Allies” (which premieres in cinemas in June 2014), we were on a closed set and the taking of photos on the set was forbidden. A selection of what we could gather is presented at the end of Volume 2.
