Battle of Detroit War of 1812 re-enactment, Cardiff Castle

A I mentioned in a previous post, on the previous bank holiday my brother and myself attended a re-enactment of the Battle of Detroit from the War of 1812 which was held at Cardiff Castle.  
  
A number of British re-enactors from the 28th (North Gloucestershire), 33rd (Duke of Wellington's) and the 41st (Welch) Regiments took part with a small group of them also representing US infantry. I have a lot more photos which are available following the link below.

A special guest star was Major General Isaac Brock. The real chap was in fact a jolly nice, and very informative, Canadian re-enactor.

I'll be adding to the descriptions, titles etc. as, and when, I get the opportunity but please feel free to add any relative information.

On a small side note, I can highly recommend a visit the Goat Major pub, very nice pints of Brains SA bitter, great pies, good value and very friendly staff. The pub is only yards away from the main entrance to the castle.
