Lobsters, Bolsover And Blandings

Over the Bank Holiday Bolsover Castle saw the debut of Haselrigs "lobsters", as it is only an hour and twenty minutes away and we are English Heritage members we popped along, the castle is also worth a visit in its own right. A fine display was put on, mortar, petard, grenadoes all making an appearence, the horse were finely supported by Devereux's Regiment Of Foote, Lyle's (I think, though I may be wrong, apologies if I am) attempting to hold these at bay were Newcastle's Whitecoats. A big thank you to all concerned for a day of marvellous entertainment and education.

That was Sunday, Tuesday and it was over to Dave's for a game in our fictional 1940's German invasion of Britain, set in Shropshire and P. G. Wodehouse's Blandings. Dave commanded the local LDV supported by regular troops, the mission was to rescue Lord Emsworth from the clutches of the Germans. Windows 10 permitting a report may follow over on GHQ in due course, check the sidebar.
In the meantime here are some pics what I took...........................................
