    Excellent shots Dave and a lovely day – i think we all enjoyed it! Was great to see the real thing and the bonus of a top wargames show! Thanks from us all to you for organising the van, and to you and Brian for driving! Cheers!

    The Game is Flames of war , interesting because it usees Teddy Bear fur material almost exclusively. Sprayed green, it is most effective.
    Brian is standing next to a Jagd Tiger, this behemoth boasts a 128mm gun. Behind him is an Australian Cruiser tank, mark one I think.
    Next is Bovington’s famous Tiger, now operational !!
    And the last two shots are the lads inspecting a PzKpfw 3 Ausf N. This one has the side cut out so the public can get inside.Steve just manages to squeeze into the commanders seat!! It is interesting to note that this tank was one of the best for visability, with plenty of vision ports, but still you would have problems seeing. Imagine the noise and chaos of battle…smoke and debris. So the next time on the gaming table someone thinks a tank would site it’s target quickly and expertly , or even be aware of it..think again!!
