Employee from Chandlers Building Supplies in Ringmer performs for the Queen

A CHANDLERS Building Supplies employee performed for The Queen in the British Military Tournament at Earls Court.

Nigel Williams, sales office manager at Chandlers in Ringmer, is an active member of local historical re-enactment group Southern Skirmish Association that was invited to represent the American Civil War.

The group performed a short battle scene to highlight the human cost of war and, between shows, formed part of the Tournament exhibition demonstrating to the public the differences between modern weaponry and equipment compared to that of 150 years ago.

The theme of this year’s tournament was the ‘special relationship’ between America and Britain and how this has evolved over the past 400 years.
