New Additions to the French for 1940

Despite being poleaxed with an ear infection, flu and a badly strained groin on top of my usual woes I’ve not been wholly idle.

I’m not sure about this colour scheme but it’s quite striking.

Radio lorry for my French HQ.

I doubt I’ll get a game in before Xmas even if I could stand up. I hope to finish some more bits and bobs over the holidays, do a couple of books reviews and even tidy the Man Cave in readiness for the 2023 campaign season. Speaking of which I will be running a campaign for the chaps to start in Feb/March. More on this later.

What with everything that’s been going on at home I’ve not been able to do a calendar for 2023 and Christmas cards are off the agenda this year as time has run out.  Merry Christmas to one and all and normal service will be restored shortly……I hope!


  1. Merry Christmas to you both!

  2. Absolutely splendid work, so wonderfully colourful.
