It does seem like only a few weeks or months ago - even though I've written a complete new book since Waterloo200!

I don't think it was Wellington, just an example of uniform. The view from the Lion mound does tend to flatten the terrain somewhat but your right the ridges can still be made out. Regarding the new museum, the new 4D film display is truly amazing, overall the designers of the whole thing deserve massive congratulations for truly stunning visitors centre!

No, unfortunately, it IS supposed to be Wellington... :cry: :cry: :cry:
