Making connections : a visitor to Headquarters...

April 1913
General Really -Constant is sitting in his office in the picturesque yet practical castle in  which his headquarters are situated in.The castle dominates the town of Thun and from this location the General is getting ready to march south to the Centenary event.All is in order ( except for a couple of mules to finish) and Really-Constant takes some time to read over the rules of engagement written by that splendid English Padre...
His reading is interrupted by  his signals officer ( an enthusiastic Danish sailor who is still trying to liaise with the Navy Red/White but to little avail) who comes into the office with the news that His Grace  Duke Albert of Tradgardland is on the telephone and wishing to speak to the General in person.
To be continued...
I created the Duchy  of Tradgardland around six years ago as an 18th century imagination.I have really enjoyed the time spent with it.From the beginning the enemy was The Imperium aka the Austro-Hungarian Empire in general and their forces in the Netherlands in particular- just a stones throw away from the Duchy. As my other Funny Little Wars Army is Army White aka The Imperium I thought I could perhaps bring my ideas together in some way and this may be part of it...
