"Early Brit Tanks"

Okay so I have this 'thing' for those crappy early WW2 British tanks. The top two images are Valentines.

Below is the often captured, and re-used by the Germans, and Italians Matilda. I think their swell. Death traps in the field especially the Valentine, but still cool.

"Our Terrible War"

Here's some of my toy soldiers from several years ago. As I mention on New Sydneyland it would be better for all concerned if we fought our wars on table tops with guys like these below. Nobody gets hurt it doesn't make as much noise, and it seriously cheaper.

Btw the Blue flag with the single star is the Confederate "Bonnie Blue". The South went through a several battle, and national flag designs in the few years of it's existence.
