On one occasion I came across these old looking, manila coloured journals published by RAFM out of Canada full of interesting articles and references to Napoleonics. What really caught my eye however were the wonderful re fights depicted in the journals, ,many of which were beautifully illustrated by the wonderfully talented Mike Gilbert.

At present I am cleaning some of mine and gaming buddy Steve's spare and surplus copies of EEL on eBay and whilst listing came across this old favourite illustration on the front and back covers of the journal.
The White Menace, the club Austrian player, being heavily pursued by all and sundry of the french led by Jean Lochet and Tom Devoe amongst others...as well as the ADC a cat "ack... ack" I can still hear them cry!!!
|Mike Gilbert at his best! Still call my boys the White Menace whenever I have Austrians on the field.|
