Been down the wrong side of the road in France, luckily only a contry lane. Turned into the wrong side of a junction in Belgium early morning, and was going down a country lane in Belgium a couple of years ago, after getting lost on the way to the Militaria Fair at Ciney, and said to Ben why is this guy not getting over, you can guess the rest.
So, I will say, "let he who is without sin cast the first stone" Wink

Cheers,
Chris.

That's why I like you Chris, always the balanced view Wink

Well the whole incident(s) caused a verbal "jingle" to be created as a warning!! Which funnily enough started with, "whoah whoah whoah...!" when I was going around a roundabout the correct "Belgian" way!!! Nothing worse than 6 back seat drivers and I front seat co-pilot!!!!

Well I thought it was a bit much when you even insisted on driving on to the ferry the wrong way. And the roundabout that you went the wrong 'way round was in the cemter of Paris with a big arch in the middle.....

Hi guys,
Do you happen to have the dates for next years event? Is there a written instruction for kit/appearance? If it doesn't clash with other plans I could be very interested in participating.

Cheers
Joe

Its generally about the middle of February, Emile Lacroix has not set dates as yet. I can let you know what kit we'll be wearing once we know what regiment we are portaying.
