|The battalion in close column, officers to the front. Roy's right, they|
do look a bit like flapping seagulls!
|Deployed in line and ready to advance.|
|Extended order - this new fangled formation is frowned|
upon by the senior NCO's.
|A half battalion - some scenarios will call for smaller British units.|
|The sergeant major on the right is sensibly carrying a rifle to|
make himself a less conspicuous target. The officers however
may not last long once the mausers start firing.
I’m really pleased to have finished one British unit and hope to start on the next one soon. In the meantime I need to return to the Napoleonic figures on my painting desk who are feeling a little bit neglected.
