Skirmish at Deene Park

The 5/60th & 85eme still have room for more groups or individuals to attend our event at Deene Park, near Corby, July 13/14th. This is a new event with plenty of scope for growth in future years. Deene Park was the home of the Earl of Cardigan of Light Brigade fame. The house is sharing the entrance fees with the re-enactors. It is a great venue with plenty of good terrain for an interesting skirmish. Deene Park is situated off the A1 near to Corby in Northamptonshire. There is plenty of room for plastic camping and caravans for those who wish to bring along their family for a break in this beautiful part of England.

The scenario will be:

Le Chateau du Parc Deene 1814
The British forces have sent out scouts as they advance into France. Le Chateau du Deene Parc lies in their path, the troops see it as an easy target for some plunder. However, retreating French troops are in the grounds, they will not give up the Chateau easily.

If you or your group is interested in attending then please contact Rob Griffith (5/60th) griffithrob@mac.com or Rob Crookes (85eme) rcrookes@sky.com.
