As always, please check with one of the group’s officers regarding the best choices for equipment; not all equipment sold by sutlers on this page may be appropriate for a particular impression. For instance, a sword that is appropriate for the French & Indian War period might not be accurate for someone portraying a Jacobite in 1745.
