Last invasion re-enacted

7th February 1997 at 00:00
To mark the bicentenary of the last invasion of Britain when 1,200 Frenchmen landed at Careeg Wastad near Fishguard, a memorial stone and 100-foot long tapestry are to be unveiled in the port on February 22. The invasion itself will be re-enacted by the Napoleonic Association on August 30-31. Though the French surrendered after two days, they caused a panic which led to a run on the Bank of England's gold reserves. For information, ring 01348 873484.
