Skirmishers must be a member of a Skirmish site with insurance cover for skirmish activities. If in doubt, check with your site organizer. To purchase you will need to supply details of the site including your membership number. This will then be verified BEFORE your order can be dispatched. for the sake of clarity you do NOT need a UKARA membership number. If you site is part of the UKARA network that is fine, but NOT mandatory.
Theatre and Television groups will need to supply written confirmation of their status. Details will be verified BEFORE goods can be dispatched.
Members of Military re-enactment groups or society’s will need to supply written confirmation of their status. Details will be verified BEFORE goods can be dispatched.
