Welcome! And thank you for your service! For knowing where to post is quite simple. Just post it where you think it belongs. If it is wrong, i am sure Sir Edward would be more than happy to place it in the right spot. If you need to know anything, or need advice the Knights on this site will be more than happy to answer! By the way I also favor the green :) If I am correct you choose the time of The Orders patron, Sir William Marshal. Idk how much you know about him but he is a man to look into.

Yes, it is indeed the time frame I place myself in. Though the main reason is because it was the time of my main Medieval insperation and hero, Richard the Lionheart. I could write a book on everything I know about HIM, but actually, since William Marshall was one of his right hand men, and a huge part of the High Middle Ages and Knighthood itself, I do know quite a bit about Marshall. He served under Richard's father Henry II, and kept with the Plantgenet family right gthrough thereighns of Richard, John and Henry III, if I'm not mistaken.
So, yeah, I'm glad I found this particular Order, as Marshall's time frame is right smack dab in the center of the era which is my passion.

Welcome Tommy - I think you'll find the company here to your liking.  I had to smile when I read your exchange on the colors - green is a favored part of my livery as well. :)

Good afternoon Gents,

Feeling a little.....confused. One of your number (don't know if he's a offcialy in the Order) suggested I wait until I have a hauberk to evenput my application in. I do not have and can't afford one at this time, but will shortly. I've been posting here for months now, I have my pics of my kit on Facebook (Tom Shorette) - I can't figure out to post them here. My kit is thus: a chainmail coif, Lionheart tunic, cheap gloves (to be soon upgraded), a William Marshall battle ready sword, a King Richard Robin Hood film sword, and a Gen2 Crusader dagger. I feel its time for my application...Obviously my kit will be completed and accurate upon rising through the ranks of the Order. So, should I go ahead and apply?


Thank you, good sirs!
Long live the King!

Armor isn't needed to apply. It becomes a requirement for the later ranks, which essentially is a partial kit at Squire, and a complete kit for Knight.

Technically you can apply at any time. It helps tremendously to participate on the forum for a while first, since the number one reason for denying membership is just a lack of knowing anything about the applicant.

The application is here:  http://orderofthemarshal.org/members/membership/application/

Posting pictures on the forum is pretty easy. For facebook images, you can set them to "Public", and when viewing one, just grab the web address (URL) from the browser's address bar, and paste that into your message. Highlight the link in your message while you're still editing, and hit the "image" button (it's the button above the left-most smiley in the message editor), and it will be wrapped in "IMG" tags to share it inline in the message.

Another easy way to do it is to upload your images to a photo-sharing site like Flickr, Photobucket, Imgur, etc. Nearly all of those give you easy-to-copy "BBcode" to paste in forums to share the images.

We have the requirements spelled out here:

http://orderofthemarshal.org/bylaws/membership/index/

Sir Edward covered the kit requirements; none at Page level. Check over them, let us know if you have any questions, and fill in that application.

No Kit requirements even at the Yeoman. Which I am thankful for...my soft kits is 12/13th century and very shoddy. And my Hard Kit is still being build slowly...and literally by hand...but I urge you to stick around and talk to us on the forums and see if this is a community you want to invest in long term.

I can't recommend it enough, the encouragement and knowledge gleaned here in the past few months have been amazing!

Hello Gents!

 I think I've posted enough to at least put in my app. The thing about pictures is, right now I'm kind of...poor. We don't have a PC. I use my phone to write everything on here, and I have no idea HOW to copy and paste. Pictures of me and all my swords, my tunic, my whole get-ujp is on my Facebook page, but my pics are PRIVATE and I will not change them. I am a member of a certain group on fb, there is another group that are complete and utter sociopaths, they steal your facebook pics and pist them on their page, just to talk sh**. Their psychos. So unless I go to the library, you'll have to friend request me on facebook. Tom Shorette is my name, just send me a request! Thanks all!

Go for it! And i too only use my phone, only because I never use my laptop. You can add photos from your phone by going under attachments and select a file (which just referes to photos).
