  3. Not a clue who those people are but the game looks amazing, like something out of Charles Grant.

  4. Not sure - but didn't Henry run a series of articles in Miniature Wargames written by the son of a guy who started a wargame club in Germany just after the war??? Could that be them?

  7. They are a group of toy collectors from Germany. I contacted them through their website and got a very friendly response. The game they play on the pictures is called "Jung-Deutschlands Schlachtenspiel" and was produced by the toy company Hausser in 1920.
