It is my great pleasure to congratulate Fort Meigs, the American
Forces and the Crown Forces for a highly successful Grand Tactical
May 29-10 2004.
I extend my thanks to all Crown Forces who attended, especially those
who drove from afar; the Royal Marines and the 95th . The Drums, Cavalry
and Artillery added immensely to the success of the weekend.
Brigade Chaplain Raymond Hobbs conducted an excellent period Prayer Service
Sunday morning which was well attended.
My appreciation to the efforts of Gary Forman and Carolyn Raine of
Native Sun Productions www.nativesunproductions.com for their showing
of FIRST INVASION ~ THE WAR OF 1812.
This presentation which will be aired on the USA History Channel
and featured many Crown Forces. DVD and VHS copies of this TV Movie
will be available for sale at Mississinewa 1812 this October 8-10, 2004.
Best wishes to Steve Hartwick who has stepped down as Crown Forces
Sergeant Major. Steve has assured all he shall remain active in the hobby as
a member of the 1st (Royal Scots) Regiment.
