The Battle of the Nations 2013

This event was a two day event held for the second time in the small village of Hutton Court in Kent. We had good weather for this one and sunshine so it was too hot at times, althought a bit chilly at night, there’s no pleasing re-enactors! The event included drill, living history, a skirmish and some traders. It was a charity event to raise money for Help the Heros.
