Battle of the Nations 2012

This event was a two day event held for the first time in a small village of Hutton Court in Kent. We were representing the 3eme Artillerie but had guests in the form of the Brunswickers from Germany. We had good weather for this one and sunshine, so it was hot at times, there is no pleasing re-enactors! The event included drill, living history, a skirmish with all arms represented and some traders.
