Due to an unexpected burst of enthusiasm for my Boer War project nothing much Hinton Huntish has happened for the last couple of weeks. I did however stumble across this photo taken during the run up to Vintage Waterloo which for some reason I don't think ever made it onto the blog.
It shows the entire infantry of the Guard deploying near La Belle Alliance at the start of the test game. There are 10 battalions, all Hinton Hunt, and what a fine sight they made. The unit nearest the camera in the back row
are my very own 2nd Regiment de
Grenadiers-a-Pied de la Garde Imperiale. All the other units are from
Roy’s collection including the rather nice wagon with Cantinière.
Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
