Day 36 - John, Leslie, Steven Thurston of Rosa Mundi.jpg
John took me into Darlington in the morning where I posted home old maps and was able to purchase new socks and a new map case as both original items are now thread bare and split.
I received a fathers day card from Thomas, "Thank you son". In it was some linen tape, so I was able to mend my flag.
Leslie very kindly sewed a patch over the ripped soldier coat so that it might last the next 5 weeks, a very big thank you.
In the evening I was introduced to Ian and Carol, also of the re-enactment group 'Rosa Mundi' and we all went to the local pub for an evening meal. www.rosamundi.org.uk
So having spent a wonderful Saturday relaxing I now feel rejuvenated for the next 6 days slog.
