Well, it's more than a year since last I updated this Journal, and the last time was RATHER EMO so it's high time I changed it!

I have been drawing, but the cream of the crop has been coloured by young Mr Moore and appears in his gallery (I am to lazy to submit it here) and there are many other unseen drawings languishing in 'my documents'.

I have the prospect of a comission soon, many drawings circa 1805 to come, More on this in the future no doubt.

So much to tell, I now have the below new costumes:
WW1 US ARMY Other ranks Uniform
WW1 British Other ranks Uniform
2-3x WW2 Royal Navy ratings uniforms
I also now have an M1928A1 Thompson sub-machine gun!

Uniforms still in progress:
1768-1795 Marines frockcoat
WW2 British army Other ranks Uniform

Some photos of my re-enactments can be found here:

Others can be found by searching my facebook page (david bell-hartley)

I hope you are all well, and furthermore, I have chance to renew my presence on Deviantart

You look a bit like TE Lawrence, or whoever models for the Uniforms does.

Love your costumes and your gallery. Very nice!
Also good to see a fellow Brit on here! I don't seem to see many of them around :P.

'Precious friends from times gone past are never truly gone away, for fondness stands true and fast as memories, steadfast, are here to stay.'

Thinking fondly of the once DEVIA crew, and hoping all is well with you Admiral Vyse. :)
