  • R.I.P Robert Hardy

    RIP that great actor Robert Hardy who played a wonderfully slimy and loathsome Charles Augustus Milverton in the Grenada Holmes series.

      I urge anyone who has not seen it watch "All creatures great and small" one of televisions greatest achievements.

        One of my favourite actors, and - in his spare time - a respected authority on mediaeval warfare and weaponry.

        Here he is in an interesting documentary about Agincourt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaUhz_lDoZc

          He practically owned the role of Churchill.

          Interesting documentary, Gareth. I had no idea that any archer could draw back a 175 lb bow. In my younger days I could barely do 80 and I practiced almost daily.
          Best Wishes,
