Althorp Battle Prom 2010

The baattle proms are a great day out. We have a picnic and parade through the public and during the second half of the musical programme we fire to Wellingtons Victory March. The only problem with this event was it absolutely poured with rain as soon as the music started and rained until the end! However we still enjoyed the evening and managed to keep our powder dry for the firing.
