We across the water can only hope that your amazing dream comes true and that we can someday share the battlefield at Shorncliffe as fellow re-enactors.
I have heard it said that MOD moves in mysterious ways. Let us hope that they can see the international tourist potential in the site and share it with the group.

This week our Society and our fight to save Sir John Moores Redoubt we have been in the local Folkestone paper, on Kent FM radio and now the interview we did up at the Redoubt this Sunday morning in the pouring rain was aired tonight on ITV Meridian News, main feature. We are making it very hard for them to ignore us. Not bad for a little local preservation society.
Tomorrow the MOD decides what they are going to do with the site, develop, sell part of it, loan to us, etc. Hopefully all the hard work you have all done over the last few weeks has made "the powers that are" think twice. I will know on the 10th, if not before then the outcome. All we can do now is hope and pray that they listen to the views of the local people and our group.
Regardless of the conclusion, the society has come along way in just SIX months, my appreciation for you all in embracing and supporting mine and Michael's crazy idea is beyond what I can truly express. What ever the next step we have to take and I hope it is a positive one, I know our enthusiasm will lead to a total success.
Best wishes to you all
Please forward this to all our supporters.
