    Guys I've just returned form the Bi-centenary reenactment Battle of Borodino.

    Its some 80 miles west of Moscow which left the Russian army in disarray and 29000 dead.

    ABC news coverage interviewing me!

    Dave you were on TVM News on the day aswell ... infect I spotted the 19eme probably as you were the only ones in the front line with bicornes? Unfortunetly was a pity that no one informed the newsroom to state that Maltese participated, they just said Russians pulled the show ... bilhaqq rajtu lil Pres. Putin? He paid a visit in the morning ...
