Thanks Josh, it really was a strange night, even on a hot day I have felt a 'chill'. I would go again at night, just not on my own ! :oops:

204 years today! Can't believe it's 4 years since we stood at the site of the breaches at Badajoz 200 years and at the exact hour the attacks went in, a truly memorable evening.
