A recent visit to Sandhurst afforded an opportunity for PW and I to try out his Spanish Civil War naval game. He had asked me to bring a couple of 'County' class cruisers (to stand in as the Nationalist Baleares and Canarias) and a WW1 destroyer. The enemy were represented by three older cruisers and a pair of DDs. In the game I represented the forces of law and order while P (rather ironically I thought) took the part of the priest-killers.
I'm afraid I only have three photos - taken on my iPhone - as most of the hour and a half was spent working through and chatting about the game mechanisms. Above can be seen one of the Nationalist cruisers - with a load of 6 inch shells bouncing off her armour. Sadly the subsequent torpedoes were less easily dissuaded.
Vengance, however, was swift. Here is the Republican flagship cheerily ablaze after a battering by some 8-inch shells. Needless to say, the disorganised Reds couldn't stop the fire and down she went.
Just in case you missed it - here is another view of P getting his feet wet. Just to make sure of him a stray salvo hit his lifeboat.
