Further to my recent post on a delivery of matchstick firing cannon to the tradesmens' entrance of King Boris's palace, I am pleased to report that Mr Crook has supplied yet more guns!
As well as a pair of healthy Britains 25-pounders, DC sent the rather striking silver field gun seen in the photo being delivered. This is a Lone Star model - and one which I've not seen before - with a similar firing mechanism to the 25-pdr.
It is likely that King Boris will send the gun as a present to his chum the Tsar of all the Tratvians. Once the latter has acquired a name. And paint.
*I know, but it's a good excuse to hear this again.
