Military Life during the Napoleonic Wars

With Coldstream Guards 1815

The Napoleonic Wars were a series of conflicts fought between France and a number of European nations between 1799 and 1815. Jane Austen’s first four novels were written during this time and many of her characters were members of the military. Using replica uniform to illustrate his talk, Edward Cull, an avid living history enthusiast, will give an insight into what life may have been like at this time for those who joined the army and how day-to-day life would have been effected.
