Waterloo 195th anniversary event - allied cavalry

Postby Andy R » Mon May 31, 2010 9:02 am

Stone the crows, just had a mail in from the organiser of the allied camp, and the allied cavaly have 96 horses booked in (this includes mounted officers of varying types)

So the current breakdown looks like 29 British, 32 Prussian, 8 Dutch, 8 Brunswickers and 19 "Bohemian".

On top of that there are 1200 Allied Infantry booked in, so all told, it's looking good...!!!


Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

Great news. It was lonely last year, there were so few on the Brit side. Any idea how the numbers break down into heavy/light? You are coming to LBE 2010 as well are you not?
Cheers, Ben

Cavalry sounding good but the important thing is, where can I watch the England match on the Thursday night?
