Part 1 HERE

We came across a lot of horses, and people whilst we wandered around the museum

pink hair day


The 17th Lancers (Duke of Cambridge’s Own) was a cavalry regiment of the British Army, raised in 1759 and notable for its participation in the Charge of the Light Brigade during the Crimean War. These chaps were acting the part.

Not fake steel!



They also had a WW1 canteen up and running

    Madame Formidable indeed! She scared me…
    Julie’s dad was in the 12th Royal Lancers, though by that time they had tanks or armoured cars.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I admire your photographic eye. The detail shots like the stirrups on the horse really show the event you went to in a positive way.

    Madame Formidable’s clothing looks as anachronistic as the polystyrene plates and as harmful to the environment.
