    More great pictures, Sven! Quite the close action with those ships and the cannon smoke banks...(look away, Timothy...)

    The food and prize tables look inviting, too - and the debriefing action is always good to document. Have fun tomorrow, too!

    That‘s a special „medal“ for bombing important sanitary installations during a strafing attack vs. an RAF airfield (Prague 2017).

    UK Wing members awarded me the brush with oak leaves and „clusters“ for this heroic action.

    This is my Talisman for every bombing mission now, especially BoB ones.

    I told this brush story to my girlfriend and she answerd: "You should win it, we need one!"

    Yes the ladies are much more practical than the boys. To them, life is for shopping

    I think our LL member Mike had a great time at the Wings of Prague Con.

    Thx for supporting his trip with the raffles.

    Last picture is about the food I organized from a Britisch supply unit...

    Great convention, great friendship, great fun. So much creativity around. And the traditional international buffet.
    Horray for our organizers and for all people who contributed with scenarios, game materials, food and presence.

    First day venue: Lada's great shop. Tripods in sight!

    At the shop at the corner I hurriedly bought some glasses for the wine. They had them in strange colors. Not so strange after all, I discovered later.

    If you mean "No. 8", it's a Pfalz E.I from 1915 - more to come about this little beastie later...................

    begging the question, would usage enhance or impede accuracy and damage output?
