Sharpe has now returned to our TV screens in the UK with Sean Bean fighting his way across India in the usual company of evil villains, plucky youngsters and beautiful women as well as Patrick Harper with his trusty Nock Volley gun. For those of you wishing to recreate the earlier exploits of Sharpe in Portugal and Spain I suggest you check out this video from the 95th Rifle Association. Congreve rockets (of a sort), Riflemen in skirmish order, cannons firing and a 'shako cam' all look loads of fun...
...although not in the current weather. As the winter nights get colder I'll settle for sitting inside and reading British Riflemen 1797-1815.
