The Model.
where did this start?.
The Exhibition.


I visited the site at the end of May 2012 which also coincided with a mini re-enactment display.  

The visit afforded a much better feel for the terrain.;

it was notably flatter than I had believed.


The Russian Embassy’s Rossotrudnichestvo office

in London exhibited it from 6th-14th September and

between 26th September - 3rd November 2012 it was

shown at the Scotland-Russia Institute in Edinburgh.

It is now ‘home’ in Shropshire until a permanent home

can be found - somewhere?


In April 2014 I was awarded the commemorative medal;

For contribution to immortalizing the memory of the

Patriotic War of 1812” via the London Embassy.
