Salamanca Day

I dont usually do an "on this day" type of entry but today is very special for several regiments of the British Army, my own long gone regiment included. I hope the new boys mark today with respect.

Today in 1812 the Anglo Portugese Army (British in the main) defeated Johnny Foreigner resoundingly at Salamanca in Spain
