"A party from Loudoun's Foote visited our Company for an evening, gave talks about the period and the Covenanter soldier's life, demonstrated weaponry and drill, and had our Boys hooked from the outset. After a rapid crash course in pike drill, the Boys were able to handle the pike, form up and manoeuvre. The guys from Loudoun's delivered a professional, engaging, perfectly tailored experience for us and we will definitely be looking to catch up with them again."

"Thanks Rab. Your performances went down well. We will bear you in mind for next year in your different guise."
Regards Stephen Lynas, Rosyth Gala Committee
Thank you very much for another superb weekend, please pass on our thanks to all your team and everyone involved. Your displays were absolutely top notch in every way as usual. I loved the wee cameo displays in the small arena, each added details that the larger shows do not give. Each presentation had been well thought through and very professionally put across.
The battle in the main arena far exceeded my own expectations...The little scenarios that took place throughout the build-up etc. This was by far the largest draw attracting the crowd to sit around the arena waiting for the show to start. Once again a very BIG thank you for all you have done for us.
With our very best wishes,"
Chairman Soldiers Of Killiecrankie
"For the first time we had reenactors at the Clan MacThomas International Gathering. They entertained us brilliantly. Their costumes were magnificent, the equipment authentic and the reenactments professional. Everyone had a great time, especially the overseas visitors who were delighted to have the opportunity not only to watch, but to talk and interact with the reenactors as well. They certainly brought our Gathering to a new level. Well done."

"On behalf of the Charles Edward Stuart Society I would like to pass on our sincere thanks to you and your society for the efforts made in making our Bonnie Prince Charlie weekend the success that it was.Without the continuing support of other societies such as yours we would find it very difficult to create such an enjoyable event that brings so many people to Derby.We have now started to organize next year's event, which is to be held over the weekend 30th November and 1st December 2002. I do hope that, once again, we will be able to count on the support of you and your colleagues and look forward to bringing this part of Derby's history back to life next year."
