JANET L. MATHEWS/The Columbian

When Doreen Jones arrived at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site on Sunday to visit Brigade Encampment 2004, she was honored with an act of old-fashioned chivalry.  Vancouver, B.C., residents David Funk, left, and Simon Sherwood have taken part in re-enactment events for years, but this was their first trip to Fort Vancouver.  When asked about their assistance of Jones -- they also helped her into her car when she left -- the two gave a historically appropriate answer: They saw a lady without a hat in the heat of the day and did what was gentlemanly.  Temperatures could be in the 90s again today.
