Fun picture. WHY IS THAT MAN WEARING GLASSES?

More of a preamble picture obviously, again nice sharpness.

The glasses are probably hand made, like everything in their kit. Most reenactors are obsessed wit authenticity.

Yes, of course. They look fairly solid, but I am being too picky.

Anyhow, they deserve a lot of respect for having the guts to fire that cannon!

Not sure whether the realism of the cannon is a plus or minus, either way they had a nasty habit of blowing up!
