okko, Could you tell us a bit about the 80th Staffordshire Volunteers. Are they involved in any events in 2010.
I expect your interested in Private Samuel Wassall of the 80th Regiment of Foot (Staffordshire Volunteers)

I have only just got involved as a few of our friends from the Sealed Knot which I have been involved with over the last 11 years as a family whilst the kids have been growing up and recently stepped down from the work I was doing as PR officer with them (needed a break!) . So its been an opportunity to do something different. It is only a small group (in comparison to the Sealed Knot) but The Staffordshire's do seem a very friendly group and keen to develop . Busy now getting the kit together and reading up on the History! They are going to Blists Hill Museum - Village- this Saturday for the Victorian Christmas fair hopefully we will make the long drive down there as sounds very festive.
