Batemans 6th to 7th August 2016

Panorama of Batemans Battlefield

Once again the 10th Essex made our annual appearance at Batemans, home of Rudyard Kipling in Burwash, East Sussex. Both days were well attended by the public with our battlefield show depicting the Battle of The Somme.

The Royal Flying Corps did their show a number of times throughout the day and although it made the public laugh there is a serious side to the story. If you want to know more then you will just have to come to one of our events.

One of the highlights for us was Bayonet Fencing and the art of welding a rifle like a sword but with two hands. It was tiring and thrilling at the same time.

We were also joined for the first time by our American and Australian friends, who said that they will be back. However, we will have to reciprocate sometime in the future.
