UGRE 2013 has come and gone. Yet again, it was a fantastic day of research presentations, posters and panels from Leeds’ amazing undergrads. For this UGRE I created a poster about my research Britons at war: Camp life and campaign!
Created to engage with the general public I hope this poster reveals my passion and love for all things redcoat. And hopefully you can learn something about camp life too!

Waterloo200 is looking for anyone who may have any stories or any connections to a family member or veteran of the Napoleonic War Conflict and in particular the Battle of Waterloo. If you know anyone who would like to tell us about their story, please feel free to contact us at http://www.waterloo200.org/contact.
Also, in commemoration of the upcoming bi-centenary of the Battle of Waterloo in 2015, an e-petition has been set up in an attempt to mark the occasion with a bank holiday. If you would like to sign the petition then please take a minute to look at http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/26429 and add your name to the list.
A commemoration is what we are hoping for – a pan-European remembrance of all those who fought, died and were caught up in the Napoleonic Wars and Waterloo! Let’s hope that this is what we can achieve.
Thanks for your continued support!
