Hi Dante, I don't think that we are quite what you want. We're a Napoleonic Wars re-enactment group. Our goal is to repel the dreaded hordes of Frenchmen.

Hi Brian, Sorry for the delay in answering your question. I've just got back from Greece and our unit historian is not yet back from the West Country from his holiday. I personally do not have any records etc pertaining to the unit but Peter Heath might be able to help. He should be back on this Thursday so I'll pass the message on and see if he can help. Regards Nigel Roberts

Hi Andy, First of all let me apologise for the delay in reply. I've just got back from Greece and I am valiantly trying to get back all my plates spinning with appropriate velocity... Anyway, the Militia has had a bit of a holiday too with almost nothing on over the last month but now we have a busy bit. We have a full Saturday, Sunday display coming up this weekend at the Ipswich Maritime Festival followed two weeks later by another full weekend at the Great Yarmouth Maritime Festival. We then finish the sequence with Kings Lynn Heritage Open Day, which is on Sunday, Sept 15th. If you want to come along to any of these events feel free to give me an e-mail ([email protected]) and I'll give you more details. I can also supply a French prisoners uniform so you can really be in on things but without the responsibility of having to do anything apart from wandering around going "Quoi?" Should wish to join then there is no membership fee and we provide you with a uniform and the equipment to go with it on the understanding that if you should leave that you give the uniform etc back in. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. Nigel Roberts

Hi - my wife's ancestor, Richard Athill, was a member of the ENMilitia from about 1798 to 1802/3. He married in Colchester in 1799, but we don't know his birthdate/place or why he left. We obtained copies of some of the paylists, which show where he moved around the country, but would dearly like to find more of his information. Can anyone help?

Hi Victoria,

If you could give me a bit more information we may be able to find out a bit more about him. I am currently doing a PhD on the ENM and have a lot of muster lists... which may well include his name, and anyway, I can probably tell you where he was at different times during his service. My email is [email protected]

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Peter Heath

Would love to know more about the history of the Norfolk Militia as my ggg-grandfather served
for over 30 years with them from 1788 to 1819. He served in Ireland where he was injured and discharged on medical grounds when the Militia returned to England. His name was James Gidney and I have copies of his discharge papers if anybody is interested
