There is a Fencing Competition on the weekend of 29th & 30th of June this year at RAF Cosford this year. Details are available via the BFA website britshfencing.com/events.
I will be travelling up on the Friday day time and coming back on the Saturday night after the discipline – the Foil – has finished. If anybody would like to travel with me and share the cost of the fuel, please contact me.

Between 1915 and 1922, Mussolini fought in five duels, winning all of them.The duels were against the Socialist deputies Claudio Treves and Francesco Ciccotti Scozzese, the newsman Mario Missiroli, the anarchist Libero Merlino, and Major Cristoforo Baseggio.The duels, however, were against the law, and therefore Mussolini had judiciary problems because of them. In 1921, Benito Mussolini challenged an anti-Fascist newspaper editor named Francesco Ciccotti to a duel with swords. Mussolini injured Ciccotti badly enough that he was unable to continue the fight.
