The French Foreign legion at Solferino. A piece by Emi in 54mm
- This is a 54mm French Grenadier of the Second Regiment (by EMi Italy)who fought at Solferino. I'm a bit bemused by the uniform as I've never seen this one before as regards the Solferino battle.
- On the road very near to Solferino we found this field of sunflowers.They wouldn't have breen there in 1859 I believe
Nothing is more annoying than readingsilly comments by those not in the knw about history.I say this noit from a position of sage but from that of a humble student:only today an idiot from the colonies wrote that "the French army always look good when they are not fighting a war". Of course if you have ever been to Solferino thats the last thing you'd say.
This is the story of a day out spent discovering and finding out what really went down at the Battle of Solferino .(to be continued)
