A patrol of Army 'Red' sets out to map and scout the land around the 'Round' pond . It comprises of 4 Westmorland & Cumberland Hussars and the Lanarkshire Rifle Volunteers , the force is commanded by Captain Britain . The medical staff watch as they march off.
The cavalry soon out distance the infantry . Using the proper outdoor movement distances was quite a eye opener.
The Hussars and Capt. Britain reach the 'Round' pond . (hidden behind them- rather overgrown - I should have been tidying it up - It's meant to be a haven for wild life so that's my excuse)
The infantry are rather left behind . The cat Marmaduke is totally indifferent to the manoeuvring troops .(cleaning and repainting the bench is another job to do this Spring - Oh dear this is getting depressing - I need early retirement !)
Hidden in the undergrowth (weeds) is a unit of Army 'Black' ( click on the photos to enlarge them)
The 'Red' cavalry approach totally unawares (Oh dear the path needs re pointing as well).
A volley of shots ring out and the first casualty is caused ! Too be continued .......
