Events have moved on rather here at the jolly old Duchy of Alzheim.
I was pleased (OK, delighted!) to take delivery of a huge box containing Phil Olley's Spencer Smith collection. Phil had contacted me a few weeks back asking if I was interested in purchasing part or all of it.
I hesitated for a microsecond or two then emailed him back saying YES PLEASE!!!
So here they are. I spent most of yesterday evening and part of this morning to unpack them - I still have more bubble-wrap to peel off - and they are splendid. Three fine regiments of Infantry and three more of Cavalry and a fine battery of guns as well as sundry independent companies and a unit of light infantry.
So, thanks again Phil and I will be posting photos tonight when I get the chance.
