Salute 2012 – Battle of Corunna 1809

Last in my series of Salute re-visits is the display that for me has topped everything I have seen in my years going to the convention so far – the battle of Corunna 1809, a Napoleonic era engagement staged by the Essex Gamesters Robert Browning and Ron Ringrose.

Winner of the Salute Challenge Shield, obviously.

  1. I came across their Waterloo display at Salute this year and I have to say it was amazing. Its a shame I missed the Corunna display last year as I think personally it was one of the most interesting battles of the Penninsular war. However these photos do the display credit. Absolutely brilliant!

    • Glad you enjoyed the photos. I found there weren’t enough images around to do this display justice so I decided to go back to my archive and do my bit to share it. It should be in a museum really.

    • Now a museum dedicated to wargaming. Now there’s something that someone really should do someday! I’m already looking forward to whatever suprise display they are going to have up as Salute 2014.
