A couple of months ago, one of our members who has been with us for less than 18-months had his kit stolen from his locked car. Naturally, it was all hidden with nothing remotely interesting showing – the thought being that they may have believed it was fishing gear, not realising it was something thing far cooler (and less easy to sell-on).
Unfortunately neither the car nor house insurance covered the loss, and our club insurance couldn’t help either.
Our member had saved hard for his Regenyei feder longsword, steel buckler, and kit bag – and this theft has been an inauspicious start for his interest in the hobby/sport/historical research.
Therefore, the Committee at TLA decided that we would try to help out with replacing his kit, and repay his dedication with our donation.
