  • All I want for Christmas

    Is it too late to ask Santa (or your significant other) for something to add to or complete your Napoleonic collection?

    There are so many things to wish for; a print from Meissonier, a set of uniform plates by Lucien Rousselot, a book by John Elting or a mounted figure model from Historex. But keeping with the season I think Iíd ask for one of these sets pictured. Not sure where they would be found, but thatís part of it being a wish.

    Whatís on your Napoleonic Christmas wish list?

    Merry Christmas!
    God Bless us everyone.

    Nap, they're from the King and Country Christmas Special Range, not sure if they are still available though...

    The long toll of the brave
    Is not lost in darkness
    Over the fruitful earth
    And athwart the seas
    Hath passed the light of noble deeds
    Unquenchable forever.

      Thanks Von,

      I would be very surprised to see any of these sets (yours included) under the tree this year, but I'll start leaving subtle hints for Christmas next year or maybe my birthday which is much sooner.

      Merry Christmas!

      Regards,
      WCBT

        You got me thinking of what I would like and I decided on this.

          Or with a bauble or medal
          Can win mans heart for you;

          To make a megloamaniac bright;
          Give honour to the dainty Corse,
          The Pixie is a little shite.

            Historex Agents in Dover used to have a quarter scale replica of the 1804 pattern flag and eagle on display as one walked up the stairs to the shop (1990's). It looked so good, even I asked them if I could buy it. Unfortunately they declined my entreaties to sell it to me.

                All I want for Christmas these days is a Baker rifle that was actually used in the Peninsula and have a traceable name, Battalion and company etched on it! Oh! And Mercer's sword.

                  A battle flag can look good even if it is from the "enemy".
                  I love the Prussian and Russian flags too.
                  If the British flag had a few birds on it I would love it too.

                    I couldn't find a postable pic of the British flag with birds on it, Cambronne, but here's a pic of one with a bird under it.

                    Cheers,
                    Phil
                    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
                    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
                    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
                    We will remember them.

                    Rest easy.

                      Thank you. I am beginning to think that the Brit flag can look better than I thought.
