  1. The Kindness of Strangers WW2 Solo Campaign: Chapter 12 - Opening Stages

    July 11, 1940

    After Dunkirk we've had less than a month to build up the battered and dwindled squadrons that fought in France. Under the guidance of Squadron Leader Kyte we've made several flights getting acquainted with the Spitfires. But it wasn't enough. The pilots that became Green Section arrived three days ago. And now the Germans were again on the move. Sinking ships and probing our defenses. And once again, we weren't ready. But this time, we had at least a few miles of water ...

    Amidst another week with plenty going on Glory-wise I'm pleased to report how due to a stroke of luck I now have a Supermarine Spitfire Mk II on the way. This Wings of War aircraft was bought off E-Bay yesterday when I discovered that I had a £10 Off An Item voucher on there to redeem.

  5. Glory Blog: Entry number 23

    Though there has been no actual WGS activity going on in this direction since last Wednesday (See Glory Blog: Entry number 22) there has been plenty of ancilliary activity going on in support of the game. This has mostly to do with my decision to build up a sub-fleet of around five to ten alongside the regular collection which is used by the Wife and Myself.
