The first summer after I left school and had a summer job I managed to wangle a trip to the Wargames Holiday Centre which then was based at Thornton le Dale in North Yorkshire. I think I was there for one of the 3 day holidays. I was picked up by Peter Gilder at York Railway Station and then partook of three days of gaming. I had for some inexplicable reason taken a load of black and white photos that I found some years ago and posted here: https://blog.belisarius.org.uk/2009/11/blast-from-past-part-2.html.
I know we were playtesting WRG 4th(?) Edition Ancients so played a couple of Ancient games and the final day was a large Napoleonic game. I was convinced the other pictures I had taken (again, inexplicably as slides!) were of this last game. However, this week, while sorting through the attic in preparation for a house move I found the slides. And they are of the same (or possibly a different!) Late Roman/Sassanid game.
As said in the old blog post, it was a great weekend with a great host. I came away with a pile of Russian Napoleonics that were sculpted by and cast just for Peter. I wish I still had them and that I’d taken some pics of that Napoleonic game! Maybe there is still another box of slides to be uncovered?
Anyway, hope they are of interest.
