Lots of piccies!

First is an atmospheric shot of the Menin Gate at 8pm on 11/11/06. This place really is the spiritual home of the British and Commonwealth armies on the Ypres Salient.


Tyne Cot cemetary on Passchendale ridge. I think this is the largest Commenwealth war cemetary in the world. The dead from 1917 to the end of the war on the Ypres salient are buried here.

The Theipval memorial on the Somme.


Back to some wargaming with Peter Pig Fuzzy Wuzzys on a rocky outcrop surveying the oncoming British patrol. A game of Patrols in the Sudan from last year.


Here are the British from the same game. An atmospheric shot with the Brits emerging from a sandstorm.

Some AK47 action. A base of 'looters', one with a chainsaw, the other in a Manchester United shirt!



The commander of my Colonial/Settlers AK47 army, Mnr Pierre le Porc. This is a limited edition figure released by Peter Pig and given to people putting on a game at 'Fisticuffs' in Weymouth about 7 or 8 years ago!


A nice T55, one of several in my AK47 collection.

A Hammerin Iron game at the club from last year. Loads of ships, 5 players and a lot of fun!





And finally one of wife, looking very cold in Prague a couple of years ago on our wedding anniversary!
