Waterloo 200: artillery

One of my favourite images from the incredible Battle of Waterloo 200th anniversary reenactment in Belgium, which took place over two days and involved over 6,000 reenactors, 330 horses, 120 cannon and 2,600kg of gunpowder, and was watched by some 200,000 spectators. Pictured here, cannon firing during the reenactment of the Allied counterattack (Saturday 20 June 2015). © Rudolf Abraham

Stunning image Rudolf. The piece in question is the 6lbr of ‘Sandhams’s’ No. 9 Company, 3rd Battalion, Royal Foot Artillery.
