As is obvious from the lack of posts, I have been derelict again this year in maintining this blog.
Now that I have some time off work over the Christmas holidays I will make a few posts mainly showing the few games that we have gotten in over the period since March.
First up is a great game of Blucher that Ralph put on for us at the club in July. It was the Battle of Fuentes De Onoro. John and I were the Spanish / British. A few photos with captions.

|We're defending the river and advancing to Fuentes|
|Just in the time as French cavalry appear on my right flank|
|British Guards are in Fuentes and would be very hard to evict|
|After many attempts and wasted French brigades they get into part of Fuentes|
|But not for long - we took it back on the next turn|
We had a great day's gaming and as to be expected :) the British / Spanish forces won the day. The victory came down to the covering action on the right flank and the steadfastness of the British in the town.
