Visit to Waterloo

I was incredibly lucky to have had the chance to travel to 1 of our Napoleonic bucket list battlefields this month. With 3 other Napoleonic daft chaps we made the pilgrimage to Waterloo for the 203 anniversary!


It was an awesome trip and will remain in my memory for the rest of my life!!!

A really cool and funny thing. We were doing a staged closing of the gate pic. We had just finished and had started walking away when I thought I heard a knock on the gate, we looked over the wall and standing before us was a good number of French Napoleonic re-enactors in full gear looking to gain entry to hougoumont, class!!!

To stay in period we should really have denied them entry, however we decided that both Europe and times had changed, so we showed them round to the museum entrance. 😁

  3. Thanks John, I enjoyed making this 1, the internet for uploading in Belgium out at Waterloo was like a rocket too.

    It's a must visit Matt,

  5. A great video Paul.

    The only complaint I have is that I needed to keep rewinding it to re see something of interest! 🙂
