The ramblings of a wargamer, originally up a valley in a wet and windy place and now back in civilisation.

A piece of completely stunning and humbling tv if ever there was such a thing. Remarkable colourisation and digitised newsreel from WW1. We forget that for the men at the front the war wasn’t in monochrome but in glorious and gory technocolour. I’ve seen some of the footage before aim B&Q it in colour it really hits home. Truly a different world to the one we live in now. A horrendous experience for the men who were there but from the words of the many veterans recorded by the BBC in the 1960s one filled with that wry British squaddie sense of humour and desire to ‘get the job done.’
