It is nearly a week since we took part at the event at Quebec House and Westerham last weekend. Last weekend of course being the closest to the anniversary of Wolfe and his men triumphant victory over the French at Quebec.

The weekend saw the first outing of our soldiers a-frame tent which was shared by 4 men, it proved quite cosy! However we could have done with the 5th man just to make it extra comfortable.

I am happy to say that the overwhelming  number of British regulars amply supported by rangers saw off two French attempts to take our encampment by suprise. Although we did wonder why on earth our leaders hadn’t saw fit to occupy the high ground or post sufficient sentries…..

Our French opponents, who stopped 'making love with their faces' long enough to launch two attacks on our encampment.

A particular highlight other than our fantastic singing was the complimentary comments we recieved about our standard and attention to drill made some of the other groups re-evaluate what they were doing.

Private Walsh S. demonstrates to the awkward section the correct method for charging bayonets breast high.

 
A excellent event to end the campaign season, we are now going in to Winter Quarters with a potential drill session planned for the end of the year. If you are interested in taking the Kings shilling and joining Lambtons during the winter please contact me at walsh_adam@hotmail.com .
 

Take the Kings Shilling and join us in 2012!
