Mud On Our Boots

For this weekend, I hoped to publish an article on the various uniforms featured in the first Napoleonic battle of 2018, which was to be held at Ickworth House on the 7th April. Rather unfortunately, a spell of bad weather had flooded out the ground we were to pitch camp on and the organisers were forced to announce the event’s cancellation – undeterred, a section of the 60th Rifles desired to make the most of their weekend and instead headed westwards, to the forest of Rhydycroesau on the Welsh border.

Our previous visit to Rhydycroesau was in September 2017, just a few days before the beginning of term.
