The answer is a bit cryptic :D
The younger of the (historical) leaders won the battle.
To the photos... the others have to solve this as I am still 900 Miles from Home

Vive l'emperor!!!!!

French win, not a massive win, but had taken the sunken road and crossroads come night fall, bar for 1 point where a lone British battalion was still standing its ground and the Prussians had been fended off on the right flank

Cracking game, right down to the wire - French got the initiative in the last turn which made the difference I think.

No piccies, as its not something I have an eye for - lots were taken by others though, I'm sure they'll appear at some point.
