IMAGES: Battling through the mud and the mist at Nantwich

Standard

Well Nantwich was its usual mix of fun and mud – though this year provided very atmospheric, even eerie, weather with mist shrouding the battlefield and mixing with the gunsmoke.

Unfortunately, we weren’t successful in our bid to reclaim the Rose Bowl prize for best regiment, but congratulations to our Royalist opponents, the King’s Guard, who did win.

Here is a great little video produced for the Guardian, which gives you an idea of the atmosphere of the day:
