We found this when digging out the cupboard in the top of the house. I must have been given it for Christmas or a birthday when I was maybe 6 or 7? Over half a century ago!
I can remember many an assault on its solid ramparts by a mixture of Timpo and Britains soldiers. More recently, i.e. when I was perhaps 11, I recall laying the walls flat and using the raised bases as a breastwork in early Airfix ACW or WW2 (or both combined) games with my mate Jeff Wood. Its remarkable that this fort has survived five decades, several moves and a house clearance when my mum passed away without being skipped. Mind you, being retired I might finally get to feel the joy that hundreds of Apache braves, Mexican bandidos, unrepentant Confederates, Nazis and the odd alien never had by consigning it to the flames.
