Modelling the Battle of Borodino 1812
I visited the site at the end of May 2012 which also coincided with a mini re-enactment
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.
