A few thoughts about the Blog

It has been a couple of months now, since we launched this blog. There has been an on-line survey prior to the first article. The return rate for this survey was very good and we got a clear idea about the interest of possible readers.

Experiences of a New Lieutenant

Some weeks have passed since the Company set up camp at Liebegg castle and I was able to experience life as a lieutenant.

In hindsight I am attempting to present a short summary. In the few days I went through highs and lows, there were moments of self doubt and wonderful moments that remain unforgettable.

Erlebnisse eines neuen Leutnants

Einige Wochen sind vergangen seit die Companie ihr Lager bei Burg Liebegg aufgeschlagen hat und ich Leutenant-Luft schnuppern durfte.

Mit dieser zeitlichen Distanz versuche ich ein kurzes Resumée zu ziehen.  Ich erlebte in den Tagen Hochs und Tiefs, es gab Momente in denen ich an mir selbst zweifelte und Augenblicke die grossartig waren und unvergesslich bleiben.

Of Castles, Queens and Orange Bombards

The blogposts in the queue are not really finished yet and a translation is still in the making. So we're late and I will use the time inbetween to tell you a bit about the things that are going on within the world of the Company of St. George.

Authenticity on the Example of Shoes in the Company of St. George

The following is a guest piece by Marco Hostettler, from Thun, Switzerland. It is a summary of a research article on the same subject. As part of his final year in school, he wrote that article and submitted it to the Swiss Youth Research program "Schweizer Jugend forscht / La science appelle les jeunes". There he was awarded the highest predicate. Below you will also find a link to the full research article Marco wrote about the Company.
