Chatteris Historical Fair 2011

This event took place in the Fenland town of Chatteris in Cambridgeshire. This has become an annual event, growing in size each year. This was for Infantry and Artillery and we took part with the 1st 95th Rifles whom we shared two demonstrations with. The highlight of this event was the Friday when we gave talks to classes from local schools using our living history, adding another dimension to our display.
