This event was combined with the Battle of Nations and the last big gathering before we all head off for the big one at Waterloo. This was probably the biggest Napoleonic event in this country for many years. We have a very nice camp on top of the hill by the house.
The sun shines and the camp is ready to go.
At the bottom of the hill is the rather large British camp.
Napoleon gives a stirring speech to the public to try and raise more troops.
He stands at the head of his newly formed army.
He deploys his troops who are eager to join battle with the British.
Well!!! clearly not all of them are riddled with fear and anticipation of the battle ahead!!!!!
Well that’s a stroke of luck as we position our gun on top of the steep hill.
Attention!! Ready to fire.
The Brits line up as we have the honour of escorting the Emperor to take part in the parade.
After the battle we have a nice cup of tea.
And because we are French a nice glass of wine.
The public come to see us with their parrot!!!!!
