The 27th were over to our left in the line.
Fucking golden! :laugh:The 27th were over to our left in the line.
Wellington rode up and called out a corporal. He then berated him for stealing a pig! The Dukes adjutant went into the man's pack and brought out a small stuffed pink pig! The whole British line fell about laughing. :laugh:
That was the flavour of the weekend fighting.
This was all in front of about 60,000 spectators who were in stands that marked the ridge behind Wellington's actual line on the day in 1815.
Tell me about it. We did the 370th Anniversary of Naseby this year, on a section of the original battlefield. Was very surreal.My unit, the 44th, were actually standing roughly in the position they were in on the battle. It was really strange.
I too am a long in the tooth veteran of many assaults upon the beer tents. Our invasion forces are usually preceded by a small recon force consisting of myself and our musket officer going in first.Needless to say, after an assault on the beer tent that night... we got to bed quite late!
