Canon fire and pounding hooves

Looking back on this year's twelve day event at the Museum zu Allerheiligen (the All Saints Abbeys Museum) in Schaffhouse, Switzerland. The Company of St. George was invited to participate in „The Great Schaffhausen Knights’ Festival“, which took place from July 10 to 20 2014.

Our artillery company was lodged in the abbey's cloister, where we found both dry and cool spots – which were to become very useful. We encountered some rather drastic weather changes during our stay of twelve nights and days, and it was quite reassuring to have some solid stone walls and a roof over our sleeping area.
