What it feels like to ... BE A BAT­TLE RE-ENACTOR

The Herald Magazine - - FIRST UP - ARRAN JOHN­STON

THERE’S al­ways the pos­si­bil­ity that I will come out with a few bumps and bruises but when a bat­tle is fin­ished I have this amaz­ing feel­ing of ex­hil­a­ra­tion. The golden rule is not to kill each other.

I put on bat­tle dis­plays that are en­joy­able but safe. Hav­ing said that, I use gun­pow­der, mus­ket fire and horses, which bring a whole new level of un­pre­dictabil­ity to the scene.
