      Harry, you will get all that and more as part of the Highland Brigade....even if they have to cart me around in an ambulance! (Just ask Highlanders who have served under me before over there!)

      For what it's worth on this subject, here's the view of a Redcoat
      Highlander Private. I would only be interested in a Waterloo in
      Europe, portraying my own unit. Cost, logistics, politics can all be
      overcome, individually if necessary.

      No setting can beat the actual thing: marching thru tall rye in a
      kilt, forming a square agains hoards of French Cavalry, having the
      Piper pipe around the outside of the Square in the thick smoke...
      truely the closest one can get to a Time Machine.

      2015 will give me 30 years in reenacting, and I too plan to hang up
      the musket and bonnet; hopefully passing them on to my Grandson. It
      is a worthy goal and I am glad to see it being talked about this
      early. I am willing to bet it will be a very big event in Europe, and
      CFNA can only add to it. I look forward to reliving history again!
