On the Sunday the commemorations were brought to a conclusion with the finale being a reconstruction of the battle. It was not on the scale of the Waterloo re enactment the following week but never the less it was an honour to take part in it.We are ready battle and leave for the battlefield.
We parade through the village and then have to wait for the French.
Napoleon gets priority of course.
The French artillery have it easy compared to our group.
Its along drag up the hill!!! Time for a rest.
Lots of public gather.
In position at last.
Time for a rest.
In fact time for a drink and lunch.
The Light troops deploy.
The French troops deploy
Followed by their cavalry.
There seems to be a lot of them!!!
Ahh! Slightly outnumbered.
We are ready for battle and on the right of the line.
The barrage commences.
Umm ! That did not work then they are still coming.
Umm!! time to withdraw I think.
One last try to stop them.
Then the cavalry charge and its all over.
Back to camp after a beer from a Belgian Guy who thought we needed a drink, (he was so right)
To very hot people, we had great weather just to make it better.
