[size=150]Participation Rules[/size]

A) The event is a hypothetical tactical set immediately after the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. It is asked that participants wear uniforms that correspond to this period of the Napoleonic Wars. (e.g. Belgic shako for British line infantry and not the stovepipe, etc.)

 Please also note that this is a gender-specific event.
For reasons due to terrain limitations and time constraints, it is not possible to accommodate either horses or wheeled vehicules. This event is only open to infantry.

B) All infantry personnel MUST have a haversack/bag-pack.
 For those who cannot get hold of one, they can use their great-coat or blanket strapped across their back to carry their affairs and rations but it is not permitted to simple not to have anything on your back.
 Officers on foot must be able to carry their possessions either in a blanket/great-coat roll and/or a leather officer bag.
 Participants must be able to carry all their equipment and rations on their persons for the event duration, please evaluate your load accordingly. There is no cart or waggon available to make sure that your pack is sturdy and your shoulders broad.

C) Tents are not allowed and the participants are invited to construct shelters in their bivouacs. Please note though that shelter tents are allowed provided that the soldier carries his canvas on his person during the day.

D) The infantry will be organised in a united-company made of 2 sub-divisions (each under the command of an officer, with one acting as company capitain and the other as lieutenant) and 4 sections (each section under the responsability of a sergent).

E) Depending upon participation, the organisors reserve the right to modify the united-company as they see fit.

Fi) Rations are to follow the British period regulations as closely as possible:

- Bread – 1,5 pounds
- Beef (1 pound) or Porc (0.5 pounds) – Other dry/smoked meats will be tolerated.
- Peas – Quarter pint – Other vegetables will be tolerated.
- Cheese or Butter – 1 onze
- Rice – 1 onze – Can be replaced if so wished.

Fii) All rations are to be wrapped in brown paper or linen bags with string before the start of the event. Drink rations are to be stored in glass bottles (without labels) and carried by participants. This is a private event and no food subsidy will be organised. All troops will be asked to supply themselves with period rations for the weekend and to perhaps use their persuasive powers to scrounge or buy food from the locals.

Fiii) As the troops will not be staying in the same camp over the weekend, each soldier must be able to carry all his provisions and cooking/eating utensils on his person so it is recommended that participants review their weekend package accordingly.

G) All participants are to perform tasks and duties associated with their persona and beyond the simple realm of fighting battles but equally in the camp. A soldier’s life is more than just fighting.

H) There is no powder issue for this event. The hosting group “Soldats des Cent-Jours” is able to buy powder on behalf of interested parties for a certain price. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

I) Female civilian impressions are accepted on a case-by-case basis and based upon historical norms and practices. Male civilian impressions are equally accepted on a case-by-case basis and based upon justification of the role they wish to portray.

J) No camp bed or modern camping equipment may be taken on the event. Straw will be available on the different sites to be used as bedding if necessary.

K) Absolutely no modern articles may be taken on the event. However, for articles such as medicines, car keys, money and passports/ID papers, these can be taken as long as they are put in a linen/cotton bag to be put in the backpack.

L) There are no toilets are available within the campaign area and as such, more rustic areas will need to be selected to act as latrines near each bivouac. For hygiene reasons, toilet paper will be authorised and each unit must have a spade in order to dig holes and bury human waste. It is to be noted that only possible camp areas where there may be an available water-point will be considered for the campaign weekend.

M) Night raids on the enemy positions may well be ordered by either the French or Allied commanders’ discretion and in accordance with their weekend objectives. However, in accordance with the local gendarmerie, a night cease fire will be implemented. The exact hours of this cease-fire is still under negotiation with the authorities but it is likely that hostilities will cease from 22h on Saturday night until 05h00 on Sunday morning but this will be confirmed prior to the event.
