Wonderful what holidays turn up...

Well, as those of you who followed my Blog on my old Freewebs site {of the same name} will know, I've been away on holiday for a couple of months: to Hong Kong, Australia and Singapore to be precise. Even when so far from home and hobby I find its remarkable what you can somehow 'find' which relates to the wider aspects of an interest in military history...
HMBark Endeavour, moored at Freemantle, WA

A 'Digger' in Vietnam ~ at the lovely Ray Robinson Memorial Militay Museum in Kadina, SA

The gateway to the C19th Fort in Singapore, now in Fort Canning Park, site of the WWII Battle Box, from where the failed defence of Malaya and Singapore itself was directed...

Well, just a taster really of what can be 'accidentally' found by the wargamer on holiday! Once I shake off this dreadful jetlag I'll try to post again on a more wargame related theme.


  1. Call that a hat? Now this is a hat.

  2. Wish I had known you were coming to Perth!! :-(>
