Postby Rural53 » 26 Nov 2013 09:27

A couple of weekends ago was the annual Armistice in Cambridge event. See here http://www.victorianwars.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=7726 for last years event.

Amongst the re-enactors were the 65th Regiment aided by the Armed Constabulary.

Edit: Theses photos are all taken by me. They carry my photography side line's copyright because lately I've had a few of my offroad racing photos turn up in publications uncredited or worse claimed by others.

The other Victorian era re-enactment was a late Boer War skirmish.

The Queen’s Surrey ambushed by a Boer Commando.

Taking casualties and having had their machine gun blown up with a thrown stick of dynamite the Surreys are pleased to see the New Zealand Mounted Rifles turn up to give a hand.

Thanks for the photos. Fun weekend all round.

Yes Jason is tall, about 6" taller than me, but this photo makes me look like a hobbit - I'm 5' 11", with a flat hat on, standing on the down side a slope, and he has a pith helmet on. :D

Excellent show chaps, it looks like you had a great time! It's also good to see the West Surrey's in action over in NZ as well as in the UK!
