Washington debarque a Douvres

In 1987 (I think) a load of US and Canadian Revwar reenactors came over to England - sponsored by a supermarket chain and flown over by the US air force and the guests of English Heritage. Events were done at places like Dover Castle and Audley End. A few UK reenactors took part. I didn't but I remember being pretty interested by the coverage it got in the media which was extensive. It strangely didn't really start a wave of Revwar reenacting as it should have done but there ya go. This is a piece of an article on the subject from French military magazine Tradition. Two of Britains only Iroquois reenactors were allowed to take part with the Royal Yorkers - see the picture here
