The Battle of Waterloo [Jun. 29th, 2015|05:09 pm]

Friday 19 June: The big Battle

A daytime of drill, Haggis lunch (to celebrate Ross retiring he treated us to haggis and tattie) and Ladies afternoon tea,  then in the evening we went to watch the big battle...quite something walking through the battlefield to see so much crowd .
After crossing one of the big historical farm and the fields we had a nice piece of fields to watch it from (a bit like inferno night before lots of mayhem regarding wristband and entry access again) . Great battle but shame just so late 8-10pm so by the time you return just collapse (also we left at 5pm to get there as many stops and wait, then a bridge had collapse after a canon went on it so even us ladies ended up on the field which was a bit surreal but got soem great shot as a result and well anotehr experience.
Gosh the scale of it all and apparantly it was even better the next day (only saw friday one as saturday I was looking after the camp)
 Both spectacular and so much more far away than usual battle...btu i imagien for those on the field quite something, not sure for the public that were even further than us.
