Third Tring Game part 1

Whistle Bridge
 Jim and Rob's Anglican League were defending Whistle Bridge from Matts Reccon in force. Matt came under fire from Rob's AT gun and an Infantry section. Matt moved down to the river and destroyed the AT gun and forced the section to retire.
East Coker
 Ook and Smillie were in East Coker as the Anglican League, when it was attacked by Allan and Andy. This was Andy's first wargame and I'd dropped him in at the deep end ( sorry mate). Allan and Andy deployed behind the ridge line. And then tryed to take the farm. This was defended by Smillie firing from the hedge line. As this was going on Andy moved to his left. Mean while Ook was moving from the centre of the village to cut Andy off.

Family Album

My Mum has been a great help with the whole VBCW project, she has just given me a load of old photo's of her family. All of the are from the 1930s. Here the first ones.

My great Uncle Sam is the one these photo's with the eyebrows.

WeyFest, 2011

Wayfest is held at The Rural Life Centre, Reeds Road, Tilford, Farnham, Surrey, GU10 2DL.
This is a great place for 1930s stuff and a place I'd highly recommend to go too.
If you have a rural life centre near you go and have look, my mum does cooking demo's at the one in Glastonbury.

Curried prawn's anyone?
