EXERT FROM APPENDIX 1 from Don Featherstone's Battles With Model Soldiers
(The book that got me started.)

"Nothing in these pages is a dictate, no word says you must or you shall do it this way. On the contrary, the book sets out from the very beginning to stimulate the reader to think for himself, and to use what he has read merely as a foundation for efforts and ideas which reflect his own temperament and character. Only in this way will he obtain maximum satisfaction from the hobby of battling with model soldiers."

Moving kinda Slow to the Junction

Petit Cote Junction.



No time to play today so the refight will happen Sunday as Spring arrives in Oerberg.

Hmm, upon reflection I suspect that the veiled cultural (sic) reference to Uncle Joe and Petticoat Junction might be a bit too obscure for many readers but if so don't worry about it, just time and place is all.

  1. Where's the water tower/swimmin' hole?

    1. Hmm, yes I guess a water tower would have added a "touch of class".

  2. The programme still turns up on obscure satelite TV channels from time to time.

  3. The Programme had a lot in common with 'Green Acres' - staring Eddie Albert and Zar-Zar Gabore...great shows- with characters like 'Sam Drucker'- just fun.

    1. I never cottoned on to Green Acres and to be honest 50 years on, don't remember much about the class except a lick of the song and "uncle Joe" and his touch of class.

  4. Uncle Joe looks like he has lost some weight! I was looking for the water tower as well.
