EXCERPT 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."

We're no awa' to bide awa'

Up packs!  Time to go,

and... we're off!  That's us, Martin in the driver's seat and me in the coach crossing over the Kennetcook towards the Wentworth Pass and points South.

Hopefully everything that is needed is in the bins and bags or can be borrowed, bought or improvised on site!  We fully expect reports to be wired in by our correspondent at the front.

Meanwhile, for your listening pleasure:

The Corries with "We're no awa to bide awa"


  1. Have a good 'un. I won't be making Huzzah! this year, so looking forward to your reports.

  2. Good luck (and your picture seems to have mis-loaded)!

  3. Ross Mac,

    Have a great time.

    All the b st,


    PS. For some reason your photo won't load.
