One of my early recollections of my childhood was visiting some relatives in Mt Lawley on a Sunday, which for us was always so special. Different food, a different house and yard to explore. Lots of fun. On one particular visit I was busy running about when I passed a room where the television had been inadvertently left on and was captivated. Massed columns were attacking a battery of guns (even at this early stage of my life Airfix catalogues and Bruce Quarries Napoleonic Wargaming Guide had become part of my life!).
It happened to be the Hollywood version of War and Peace however I believe they had made arrangements to borrow some of the battle scenes from Sergei Bundarchuks grander Russian version. I sat and watched the remainder of the movie and was captivated.

They are going to get a fair amount of action in the coming months.
