For Steve-the wargamer I found an excellent micro brewery at the Driftwood Spars and a pint of "Bawden Rocks", which are a couple of splendid rock stacks offshore nearby. Another day found a pint of Black Pearl from the Wooden Hand brewery together with a Sunday roast, just the job after being caught in a rainstorm. I also acquired a cheap copy of "Marlborough's Shadow", the life of Cadogan in a bookshop in Wells.
Wargaming and painting wise I did nothing, expect catching up on my reading with the Battle of Paoli and "Forrard" the history of the East Riding Yeomanry.
The former covered the AWI battle in 1777 where General Grey gained his "No flint" title. I found it a disappointing read there was plenty of detail but it wasn't pulled together in a coherent fashion. However the was enough to be able to create a game/scenario around the "massacre"
"Forrard" was very much a standard WW2 regimental history, its interest really lies in the actions of the 1st ERY in 1940 around Cassel, otherwise it's a history of a pretty ordinary armoured regiment, enlivened with a number of amusing anecdotes.
