Above is a pic of Lt. Colonel James Galbraith, Regimental Colour in hand, alongside Bobbie the regimental dog and some of the other "Last Eleven" survivors of the 66th (Berkshire) Regiment, making their last stand in one of the walled gardens just South of Khig village, a few miles West of the Afghan town of Maiwand.

MAIWAND DAY 130 COMETH

Yesterday was one helluva day of wargaming. A lot of fun for a lot of people, I think. Having had to get up this morning at a decent hour for work-related reasons after another super-late night (the game itself ran until 1:30am!), I am simply too fried to do a legit write-up or post many of the pretty dang impressive pix right now. But Maiwand Day has come and gone, so I MUST POST SOMETHING!

First up are 3 of the many pics I took while we were playing...















































And now for the really good stuff -- some pictures taken by a friend and neighbor who is a talented photographer. He used some digital "antique" process on the shots and I think they look incredible...

  1. Hopefully you will get "caught up" enough to post an account of how things went relatively soon.

    I'm looking forward to your report.
