Good Day out with the Diehards

Postby mike snook » 27 Jun 2015 22:14

Had a good old time today watching the Diehards Company of the VMS portraying the 24th Regiment in 1879. I always enjoy watching the Diehards and commend any opportunity to catch up with them over the summer season. There are some photos and a short video clip on the Facebook Page of my outfit Iron Duke Minis. I hope the link works!

If you scroll down the page there's also lots of stuff from Waterloo 200 which might be of interest to some.

It's also worth knowing that Neil Aspinshaw, who knows everything there is to know about the Martini-Henry, and then some, has a book on the rifle coming out shortly. When I know the finer details of publication date etc I'll provide them here.

Regards

Mike

I had no idea you were actually in the model figure business, Mike. I can't commend them enough, really.

Only for the past couple of months Josh. Glad you like what you see. There's a link on the left of the FB page to the full website where there's lots of 1857 history stuff which might interest you.

As ever

Good stuff Mike, I've 'liked' the FB page.

I also saw a photo posted by Neil on his FB page, of the Martini case that you found at Abu Klea. Nice find!
