It might be a good idea to bring a waterbarrel on the wagon... Water is a real necessity in the second bivouac.

Hi,

It is true that the sand quarry bivouac did make people work to get water from the village.
Even though this has always been the standard procedure with this particular bivouac (no tapes being on site and my own refusal to have plastic bottles anywhere near the immersion area), it did prove to be alittle bit overwhelming this year.

I'm actually seeking other sites that could be better water access (which is important if large amount of cavalry numbers) but it none will have as nice a view as the sand quarry.

Having said that, the idea of having a barrel of water is a good one (providing someone has one to bring along). There's also the issue of whether the little donkeys that are replacing the waggon (which we don't have for 2010) could physically carry it and with what equipement.

I like the donkey idea... stubborn foul beasts... If we can get the horse artillery over.... they plan to take a flat wagon also (seen them driving around on waterloo this year...)

I would indeed miss the quary view.....

I've posted on another part of the forum an up-date regarding the water-point issues about potential bivouac sites. Smile

Coming back to this old post...

Does anyone have some decent water-holding containers that are period-friendly? (Like a large caraf for example) I would need a few of these to carry the water in our waggon.

To cover sail cloth around the plastic tanks for the horses. 1 wooden bucket, 2 demijohns...
We could bring this (if it makes no difference for Don).

Wooden bucket is good.
What's a "demijohn"?

I don't think that there will be any plastic tanks for the horses...As far as I'm aware, the horse owner (waggon) is bringing metal containers of some form....
