Peronne Museum -Great War Tour pt3

 During the battle of the Somme in 1916 Peronne lay in the French sector ,in March 1917 the Germans retreated leaving the town in ruins.In 1918 the germans recaptured the town until September when the Australian 2nd Division finally took it..The museum was opened in a restored chateau in 1995 . Most of the uniforms and weapons on display are in pits in the floor

Through the Mud and the Blood

Too Fat Lardies are one of our excellent sponsors for our RBL fund raising and after reading a copy of TMB  which was donated as a prize I purchased a copy of these fantastic rule sets and bought a load of Great war miniatures and now after my recent trip to Flanders I cracked on with a few of the figures and these are the first batch . Originally I was going to paint them up as the Sheffield Battalion part of the Yorks and Lancs but decided to make them a little generic
