Crimea Reenactment

Once again I have been reviewing and digitising some old photo albums and came across a few pictures I took at a reenactment weekend back in 2003. This took place at Tilbury Fort in Essex (run by English Heritage) and featured a small number of reenactors talking to the public about the war in the Crimea.
In particular the event focused on the work of Florence Nightingale in cleaning up the hospitals and improving the survival chances for wounded and sick soldiers.
This is a selection of the best pictures I got on the day showing uniform and weaponry from that period. There was also an excellent display by a group of lancers which made this a very interesting event.

  1. Gotta love the hats on those lancers.

    I always consider myself lucky to have grown up in Portsmouth, with so much of this stuff going on. I guess it definitely left its mark!
