Battle re-enact items are history
A “MEDIEVAL” van packed with historic costumes, swords and a four poster bed has been stolen from the home of a re-enactor.
Steve Parish, who takes his old garb to schools to bring 25,000 years of history to life, said among the items stolen was his grandad’s World War One bayonet and bullets from 1645.
He said: “Handmade reproduced clothing, which cost thousands, was stolen.
“Swords and spears were in the back of the van which are weapons, and in the wrong hands could be very dangerous.
“Various irreplaceable artefacts were also in the van, including bullets used at the Battle of Naseby, in the English Civil War.”
The van was stolen between 10pm on Sunday and 7am on Monday from an address in St James, Northampton.
