Dear Harris fans,

This year is the 25th anniversary of me getting the part of Harris and the beginning of our collective Sharpe adventures. I was dreaming of a full reunion that could be shared with fans at a well-established event. Unfortunately my plans for a Sharpe event got scuppered due to work schedules and lack of will.

Hopes of a full reunion will probably have to be shelved, but so far Harper and a few Chosen have pledged their support. I will spread the net a little wider to see who else might be interested.

The event will tentatively take place at War & Peace 2018, 24-28 July held at Paddock Wood, Kent. 2018 will be a quarter of a century since the broadcast of Rifles, Wednesday 5th of May at 8pm! Any updates regarding this reunion appear first on my Facebook groups 'RIFLEMAN HARRIS FAN SITE' & 'SHARPES RIFLES'.

In other news, I am being included in a battlefield tour of Waterloo in Oct 2018. A proper guide will lead the tour and I will deliver my Sharpe lecture 'Life at the Sharpe End' back at our hotel in Brussels. It will be my maiden trip to this famous site and I'm really looking forward to it. If you have any questions please direct them to Tales from the Battlefield Tours.

As of now, the final event of the year will again be the Toy Soldier Show, 2/3 Dec which is at a new venue in Camden, London NW32BQ. First up in 2018 will be The Shooting Show 16/17/18 February which this year is at the NEC Birmingham and there are plans for me to do a Q&A and short talk at the event.

Nil Desperandum
