Remembering Waterloo

Today, I went along to Painshill Park with the family. As well as enjoying the stunning grounds, the Napoleonic Association put on a fastic historic re-enactment of various aspects of the Battle of Waterloo – as detailed here. It was a great way to bring alive the reality of the battle. I sat with both my young sons watching the skirmish before us, pictured below, and they absolutely loved it. It’s on again tomorrow, in case anyone is interested. I just hope we do as well against the French in the rugby next month!
