Re: modelling / conversion help please

By the 1890s Regimental colours were not carried into action.

A society is an organisation (or club) formed for a particular purpose. The purpose as I understand it was to share informaton and discussion on 20th (and then including 21st) Cenrury warfare with particukar emphasis on wargames set in that period. The Journal was the main vehicle of this. Without t...
