I have an item in the Trading Post, a razor that was photographed on top of a map. The first to post here what the map is about, i.e., the event that is depicted there, will win a tin of Dunhill Nightcap.

Note that the razor has already been sold.

I'm just guessing here but, the town of Nivelles rings a bell as to a town in France that was in a movie and they were protecting a bridge, "Saving Private Ryan" Hey, that's all I got sir.
Just guessing, not old enough to have served there. Wink

My guess is it was a battle between Napoleon (France) and the Prussians. Which, I don't know. I see Halle to the far left in one of the photos. That'd put it in Germany.

LOL. No, it's from a real battle, not a fantasy one. Some of you are getting close, but no dice yet. The key now is in the precise location of the armies.

You guys are close, but looking at the wrong place. Look at where the armies are engaging in battle. You guys are so kicking yourselves when you find out...
