Needham Town Common

Probably 1974. We held a mock showdown with a British officer in Needham Square on the Common.

Us, making ready to fire (me, second from right with pistol).

Hey ! Real gunpowder ! Wonder what kind of permit you have to have nowadays to do this.

I'm guessing that's Les Crumbaker of the Historical Society addressing us.

Definitely better uniforms than in the beginning !

Vaun Raymond (back to camera) as one of us demonstrates proper firing procedures.

  1. I also have a Needham Times article and a picture of Needham Militia's first female members from the early 70's. Deb Ingraham and Janet Bishop dressed as the men did, and played fife. When I can find this stuff, would you like me to email it to you?
