If you want, you never even have it have a published blog.
Just one work around suggestion so you can continue to share your amazing work, although it does mean learning your way around Blogger a bit.

:yeah: Correct.
All the rest occasionally hold the Service closed for a while, depending on how many pics you´ve got or how many times they are viewed and then ask you to upgrade to the next Level. Believe me, thier asking you to upgrade never Ends.
Google accounts ie; Blogger, are (at the Moment) free and with one or two tricks* can hold 1000´s of photos. ..Example, My blog holds 5000 at the Moment, without tricks to expand the free space.

*which aren´t necessary for a couple of thousand pics.

This is indeed bad news as your pictures of Ligny are inspirational and cannot be lost. If you have the pictures it would be relatively easy to set up a blog and also free. I transfer my pictures off my blog to this forum without trouble and I note they haven't been deleted. If you had your own blog this would have the added advantage of putting everything in one place but wouldn't stop you posting here too.

Die Schlacht von Ligny 16th Juni 1815

Timeline 7.50PM

Many thanks again to Paul for his help.

I am reposting the last set of pictures and intend to work on the rest with hopefully a new photo provider due to the extortionate demands of Photobucket.

I hope to have something more original as the battle draws to its close in the near future.

Tirallieurs from 1st brigade De La Jeune Garde, Lieutenant-general Pierre Comte Barrois, assisted by elements from 12th Infantry Division, Lieutenant-General Baron Marc-Nicholas Pecheux assault the Ferme den Bas.

Elements from 2nd Brigade Marechal-de-camp Dupeyroux, commence their advance from St Amand towards ligny as the French artillery begins to redeploy through the village.

2nd Brigade De La Jeune Garde, Marechal-de-camp Guye supported by 7th Infantry Division, Lieutenant-general Baron Jean-Baptiste Girard attempt to ‘pin’ the Prussians before Brye. If successful this will allow the Guard advancing from Ligny to envelop their rear and destroy them.

Feldmarschall Blucher is organising the defence of Ligny in person . In his absence Generallieutenant August Graf Neidhardt von Gneisenau orders the withdrawal of all Prussian forces west of Ligny in order to prevent their envelopment.

The skies begin to darken to an inky blackness as the storm arrives.

The gunfire is drowned out by thunder and the dark is torn by sheet lightning as the Guard move through a blazing Ligny scenting victory.

Hi,

Thank you very much and please, it's Chris. Christopher brings back memories of being naughty.

Talking of which no I am not related but I do remember Mr Bentines potty time.

His Battle of Waterloo was completely bonkers.

Best wishes,

Chris

Thank you for your kind comments.

I am currently working on the next episode but have all the original photos despite Photobuckets extortion racket.

It is my intention to re post them but whilst I could use the PB fix I am of the opinion that a more reliable provider would be a better option first.

Thank you again to everyone for their kind wishes. Two years. It has flown by.
