Ickworth House 11th April 2015


This re enactment was the last training opportunity before Waterloo 200, we have teamed up with Dalbiers Artillery from the Sealed Knot for this event before heading off to Belgium. The battle on the Saturday was a training event and the two armies set up for battle in the grounds of the estate. The following day saw us return to our normal arena show for the public.


We take our gun to the advantage provided by a steep hill and after a discussion deploy the gun to protect the retreat of the French army should they have to retire.


The gun is deployed.


We are brought into action by the advancing British troops


And their cavalry


Unfortunately the day was theirs but we had fun and of course a few beers in the evening. The following day saw the arena battle for the public.

We were a tad outnumbered but that is normal so we put up a good fight


However we come to a sticky end at the hands of the rifles.
