The newly arrived second ADC – the one on the right in the distinctive Bavarian raupenhelm, ie. not the bicorne!
It appears that he has been pulled from the more staid duties of an Infantry Regiment – perhaps IR 11 with the black facings piped red and the silver buttons – to perform the more flamboyant duties of an ADC. Rumour has it that his uncle pulled some strings to get our man assigned to his staff. Once again it isn’t what you know, but who you are related to!
The figures are both waiting for a varnish and the photograph is a little out of focus. Unbelievably both sets of rechargable batteries were flat – and that includes the theoretically reserve set – and only allowed the one photo. Perhaps the batteries are getting old having seen heavy duty on the overseas travels. You never know but von Peter himself may replace the photo at a later date.
The figures are from Front Rank. Chaps painted by Nigel Fun-nell, horses and basing by yours truly.
Until we meet again
