W
I am very pleased to announce that Battle of the Nations 2015 the 4th event to take place is very defenitly ON,

Unfortunately Hunton Court cannot host the event next year due to conservation work being carried out.  The owners of the park as they have thousands of trees to plant and they are trying to return the park and grounds to its former glory.

But we have another fantastic site to host the event    Wollaton Hall   Nottingham, NG8 2AE 

Set up camp Saturday 2nd May 2015
Sunday  3rd May Battle
Bank Holiday Monday 4th May Battle 2015 

Wollaton Hall & Deer Park which boasts large Battle field, stunning architecture, fascinating museum .

Directions  Wollaton Hall is 3 miles to the west of the city centre and can be found by following the brown signs from the A52 or the A6514. From the M1 take junction 25 and follow the signs.  The postcode for your sat nav is NG8 2AE

The site is in keeping with the event the grounds and battlefield are excellent please take the time to look at there website.

In keeping with all previous events it is INDEPENDENT but supported by the Napoleonic Association and Crown and Empire because as we all know an event of this size takes months of organising and a lot of funding.  We want this event to be the biggest and the best ever in this country and EVERY UNIT is invited whoever you are associated to does not matter .

This event is to accreditation units before the Waterloo 2015 ,this event is part of the "ROAD TO WATERLOO" and is the last opportunity for all of us to work together before Waterloo 200.

All NA  and Crown and Empire safety and licensing standards apply.

Fort Amherst September 2014

Fort Amhurst Garrison Event  20th 21st September 2014  3rd 95th/NA event
This will be a rare opportunity for re actors to have a fully immersive weekend by garrisoning a Napoleonic Fort.

The fort has amazing facilities which include working fires and barrack rooms, and plenty of features to practise period drill and skirmishing in woodlands and trenches, casements.

Our plan is we have a garrison commander and chief of staff ( Rob Yuill) who will run the garrison on a real time programme, which will include sentry duty, guarding of French prisoners, musketry training and skirmish tactics.

We will run Central catering as they would have at the time, with a cook house, also a working tavern for the evening , which will be open also Friday night.

The site has a Large main barracks ( refurbished Magazine) where the men will sleep and eat their meals, and keep their kit, you can bring modern camp beds as long as you bring period type blankets to hide them.
Central catering will provide Breakfast , lunch and dinner on Saturday and breakfast lunch on Sunday.

All regiments will work under one system of garrison orders and units will become messes for meal times and duty's, all will take their fair share of work.

Our aim is once you are on site you do not leave unless a medical or family problem, their will be no poping out for pizza or going to tescos.

On the Sunday afternoon at some stage our french prisoners will attempt to break into the armory and make for the docks, your duty will be to stop this before they escape.

Ladies, children  are welcome as well as artillery as we hope the Fort will be firing 24 pounders as part of training  and please bring  your own cannons if you wish.

Messing fees will be £15.00 for the weekend which will also go towards powder costs.

Those of you who have experienced Stanton will enjoy this and those who fancy something different but do not wish to camp under the stars will have the opportunity to take part in real living history on a period site and actually feel you are a soldier of the period.
