Friday Update – 23 July 2021

Editorial

Following the publication of my article last week on the split in the NCMD, the NCMD Executive has issued a statement explaining their actions and the “Opposition” 4 regions have issued an open letter to the NCMD Executive. The NCMD Executive provided a way forward by offering arbitration. The Opposition 4 accepted this offer. This is a very welcome step and it is to be hoped that both sides will grasp the opportunity to reunite the NCMD.

In readers finds, there is a medal from the Great Wheel at Earls Court. In PAS finds is a Bronze Age dagger and an unusual homemade wedding ring.
