So Day 1 was tied up doing Brigade drill on a huge field (near the beer tent). We mainly practiced marching in column and then into line. Then we tried squares which was comical. It took so long to form up and the cavalry would have made mincemeat of us! Finally,they reduced the size of the squares and we got it down to a fine art (which was very handy later on).

Marching out from Hougemont was an experiance in itself. We had to march through the Dutch/Belgium lines and they all lined up to salute us. I got all emmotional!
