And my last British Dismounted Officers.

Visits: 57

Due to my strange ways of collecting I had a number of horses without rider (because they were meant to be there when the chap dismounted I guess… “Empty Horses” as David Niven mentioned in his memoirs a Movies Director saying so – too much of a gentleman to say who – well… to cut a story short I am a firm believer in symmetry at the start (not that you can not game asymmetrical games of course!… but better have the option)… so if the French had two dismounted ADC’s… the British needed them too… life is like that… sometimes years pass between one action (buying stuff) and the other (completing collection)… LOL
