The Redcoats Are Coming!

Each afternoon at Sovereign Hill, the Redcoats march down the main street, fire a salute to the Queen (Victoria) then the "charges" are read out. The culprit is brought forward to answer these charges (he never wins), is found guilty and is "tarred and feathered" as punishment.

It is great entertainment and to the crowds of jeering people gathered to watch a scene of amusement.

I shall be doing a post about Sovereign Hill later.

NOTE - Many of my photos I took with an Instamatic ($24.95 from the local chemist) and have used my digital camera to take photos of the photos - hence the blurriness.
