Vive la France!

Did the 'History Alive' at Fort Lytton again this year. I took this photo during a recreation of Waterloo (the French won this time around). I then did a bit of picture trickery in Photoshop.
I took the whole family along and made a day of it. There were Romans, Vikings, Knights, Confederate soldiers as well as different groups from WW1 and 2.

We were having a picnic when it was interrupted by a German WW2 tank followed by a parade of German soldiers in full gear. My daughter was most indignant at having her lunch spoiled in this way.

Oh i didn't even know this was on and so close to me as well. Looks like it was a fun event.
