Basing House was the Easter weekend event for 2018, spanning March 30th to April 2nd

The original intention was to continue the annual outing of the Coventry expeditionary force on a day trip to Basing on the Monday. With Dave and Jacqui having made the trip from Edinburgh we made plans to join them on the LH campsite. Then it rained and rained a bit more, the SK published a notice to say the campsites would be closing after the Sunday battle and with the forecast for 100% chance of rain on Monday it was decided to call off the Coventry expedition.

I think that this was the first time I have let the weather stop me going to an active muster for as long as I can remember, if at all.

At least Dave and Jacqui made it there (and back).
