FAO All Forum Members

I appreciate this issue is concerned with the Napoleonic Period and so more suited to our sister-forum but I know many members here will also be interested The historic farm house at Quatre-Bras that stood at the time of the battle in 1815 has been ear-marked for demolition. Depsite the ongoing efforts of many to save the buildings the local authorities have given the go ahead for the site to be destroyed. As such there are now a number of last-ditch efforts to save the buildings and you can help by writing a letter (or email) to one or more of the ministers listed on the site linked to below:

I hope you agree it would be a great shame if these buildings disappear and any help you can give is greatly appreciated!
