East Norfolk Militia at Waterloo

The highlight of the 2015 season had to be the events marking the 200 year anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.

The East Norfolk Militia did not attend the original battle, although members of the unit did serve as reinforcements for regular units.  This year, as then, the ENM were serving alongside the 44th (East Essex) Regiment of Foot.

There are many reports on this even on the internet, but suffice to say that the memories of taking the field will remain with those who took part for the rest of their lives.
