The rifle battalion that joined us as Frenchmen on Sunday (can't remember if it was the 2nd or 3rd) did a good effort trying to be French, even singing La Marseillaise, even though it was banned xD

Missed this bit... it was the 2nd. Had it been the 3rd we'd have put o our french coats and looked bloody amazing ;)

Yeah, I know they didn't go anywhere the battlefield, they were only about 11/12 weren't they?

I'm still busy caking after sun on my nose. I particularly liked the Prussian drummer, she was pretty decent at some nice fast beats. I did still get there about 5 hours before everyone else, I actually was in the forestry area helping the groundsman gather firewood because I had sod all else to do.

Yeah around that age!

I'm getting more and more annoyed at the british drummers... none of them seem capable of drumming in time together, except the 42nd's drummer who is in a league of her own!

Report from the Telegraph, two reporters joined in on either side on the Saturday, the video's only from the Brit's perspective but I'm very happy about the written report from the guy who joined the French.
