    Hi Nuno, I am sure you would love it!

    This year we are doing a very different type of display instead of the usual trench etc.

    We are setting up a small camp in the birch woods showing how a unit would have been rested and re-equipped. Troops will be de-loused, and a "banya" or sauna will be set up in a large squad tent by heating rocks in a fire, taking them into the tent and then adding water. (We do this at most evenst in the evening after the public have gone home. But the show organisers wanted us to do this as a display!) Hair cuts, shaves will be done (by me) and old uniforms traded in for new uniforms and kit issued.

    Cheers, Ade.
