Like a Stonewall presents..."The Battle of Almansa 1707"

14th March. FB event page here
they say
LaSW brought us the awesome Daschunds and Bulldogs recently and this time they go even further back to 1707 and the epic Battle of Almansa. Fought between the Franco-Spanish and allied forces of Portugal, England and many other smaller nations. It is said it is the only time in history that "English forces have been under French command and the French, under English Command".

This excellent participation game is a great way to try out historical war gaming and banish those preconceptions. The LaSW group are friendly, warm and have a wealth of knowledge between them.

Briefing starts 0930 and is completely free!
