"At the bend of the road, back home after a long walk, some "brave" found refuge in this isolated old hostel but still occupied by a mother and two daughters … .The enemy bullets had caused some damage …. .

… this generous widow graciously offered hospitality, comfort, care, food, drink to those "lost" soldiers.

While Mom and her older daughter took care of the wounded and tired soldiers, but the youngest girl had not been able to resist the charms of an hussar and his beautiful uniform …

After a night leading "the charge" our hussar regains vigor at the morning toilet

(accessories historex: horse, equipment and harness hussar, dog, well) the rest of the decorations is my manufacture scale 1 / 32-30)

I think the daughter has the edge. Mother is a homely sort…….

This could almost have been entitled "I Don't Fancy Yours Much"

There was that song;

The innkeeper had a daughter fair, parlez-vous?
