BATTLE OF FUENTES de ONORO May 2011

Post by Forum Manager » Sun Aug 28, 2011 9:08 pm

95th Rifles Living History Society representing No.1 Coy 1st Battalion 95th (Rifle) Regiment of Foot (1/95) participated on 27-30 May in the 200th Anniversary re-enactments of the Battle of the Fuentes de Onoro (3-5 May 1811) in Spain.

I was joined by my friend Vince Law of 3/95th, plus 9th, 43rd, 44th and many other units from Spain and Portugal. Not only did we participate in the recreation of the Battle of Fuentes de Onoro but also a siege at nearby Fort Conception. On the way home I stopped off to get a lay of the land for next year's 200th Anniversary of Battle of Salamanca.
