Army Manoeuvres (1935)-inspiration for 54mm figure project

Found this footage today. Lots of interesting interwar hardware on show- wee tankettes, carriers even an autogyro! Do have a look. Working on my Britains etc figures today and hope to post some photos this weekend...


  1. Very nostalgic. I was intrigued by the very light cap bands in some shots, could these be volunteer or yeomanry units? Or did the army use them to distinguish friend from foe in the manouveres? Loved the autogyro and little 'staff' car.

    1. The light cap bands may be to do with friend/foe and also umpires.

  2. Delightful. Thank you for sharing this. It puts me in mind of the Very British Civil War games.
