Our weekend full of things to do for a wargamer´s joy - part two
after part one dealing with the CRISIS in Antwerp I´m posting part two showing photos of our additional trip to the battlefield of Waterloo.
|The Wellington Museum in Waterloo.|
|There are some plates showing the different phases of the battle.|
The audioguide explains the phases very good.
|Lord Wellington in the chamber he stayed before the battle.|
|A lot of interesting dioramas....|
|....and also funny pictures.|
|A model of the Lion´s monument.|
|Next stop was at the battlefield itself.|
|Walter seems to like the French GuardGrenadiers.|
|The Lion´s monument in original.|
|There is also a cinema with short films about the battle and also scenes from the famous movie of DinoDeLaurentis.|
|Outside the cinema there are some pictures showing Reenacters.|
This event must be very interesting to look at in 2015.
|There is also a house showing a panorama-artwork.|
In the same house is a very nice model of Hougomont.
|A part of the panorama-artwork.|
Unfortunately my camera was only able to take this single photo before it ran out of energy.
If you ever have the opportunity to visit Belgium or the CRISIS it is really worth a trip to the battlefield of Waterloo.
We had a lot of fun and maybe we can manage to be there in 2015 to have a look at the celebrating of its 200th anniversary.
