    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Oh my goodness... I just got the greatest idea... WW1 reenactors recreating the christmas truce soccer match... using a leather ball, etc. maybe playing in the mud... I'd pay to see that!

    We had a fantastic time.

    Had a lot of interest and got to play privatly in the museum for many hours before and after closing time. So we had a good look around.

    Obviously there are limitations to doing indoor displays, (stuff in the background etc) but these pics will give you some idea. We had fake snow.
