This Saturday week I went to the Albanich the wargames show in Dumfries. I was helping my club the SESWC with their Korean War 28mm display game. Colin Jack organised the display which was a slightly amended version of the Bolt Action display which we put on at Partizan in Newark last year. There was enough interest in the display to keep us from actually playing it until well into the afternoon.

A long time friend and member of the SESWC, Iain Holt, very sadly and suddenly died last November. Hugh Wilson and Jim Duncan have been disposing of Ian’s wargaming collection with the proceeds being donated to Iain's charity of choice, Combat Stress.
Simon from Solway Miniatures who organises Albanich gave Hugh a stand at the show and he managed to sell just over £900. My thanks to everyone. There is still a lot to dispose as it is a life times collection, so I am sure you will see Hugh at Carronade.
