We used to have Booze and rolling partys.

Was not uncommon to end up with 3/4000 tubes.
Ive still got a few hundred in the attic.

Well who knows what is ever definate, but.... The reason it was moved was due to Friedland being on the same weekend, but what with Eylau being a disaster that probably wont happen. With most groups preferring to go to Belgium thats where itll happen that weekend. Placenoit wants it on that weekend ...

Jena/Berlin

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/6050298.stm A busy couple of weeks. First the big bundle at Jena then 2 weeks later, the parade through the Brandenburg gate in Berlin. Thats another season done for me, and a few more airmiles to boot. http://uk.geocities.com/sgtlouis2002/Jena-Berlin/lhjena....

Poland is getting the bug for organising events and Eylau some where in a former Russian province is possibe.
I guess it could be classed as abroad, but the nearest one Ive heard mentioned so far is a gig at Fort William in the Highlands sometime in July(ish)

I should imagine the chance of getting fed and clothed appealed to many.
Of course what seemed to be the majority reason was to following a loved one, even if it meant the risk of death and mutilation.

It was a time when diets were poor, so lets just say there was not too much visible 'padding'. If you look at old photos its hard to distinguish any feminine features on underfed women as youd see nowadays. No make up, hairdressers or lipgloss on show. Maybe they had deeper voices too but we'll neve...

Luxembourg Military Museum

Spent a fascinating hour or so at this place in Diekirch which was smack in the worst of the Battle of the Bulge. So full of stuff they have pile in heaps. Some amazing full size dioramas as well, mostly taken from photos. Well worth a visit http://www.nat-military-museum.lu/pageshtml/curators-messa...
