Our man in Tradgardistan
In his bright red djellaba and armed only with a pipe and prakirnaka the Brigadier is a larger than life character. Beloved by his men and feared by his foes across the world, he is just the sort of chap to sort out the “Bit of Bother” currently sweeping Tradgardistan.
He has arrived as the self styled “ Man with the golden gun and sword “ is uniting the local tribesmen in an attempt to throw the British out of Tradgardistan. Brigadier Laudian Falls has a force consisting of A, B,C and D coys of Gurkhas, two coys from the Craigshire Highland Light Infantry, some signallers, members of the Tradgardistani Guides, tankettes and a biplane. Tomorrow he will set out and see if a bit of bother can be nipped in the bud.
I am looking forward to my first game with “The Portable Colonial Wargame “ rules. The table has been set up and Reggie and his chaps will fight their first battle...
