Languard Fort 2013

 

This event was a two day event at the start of the season at Languard Fort, Felixstowe, Suffolk. We slept in the rooms at the fort and it is a very atmospheric place and spooky at night! The fort is situated at the entrance to the river Orwell. It was our second event of the season and included drill, living history and two firing displays/skirmishes. We joined the 1st/95 Rifles in the tavernwhich they created for the event, with music by Riotous Assembly.
