The profile picture is of the first cruise ship I worked on called the TSS Canberra. I ended up spending 10 years working on this ship. The plane in the photo is a British "Canberra" bomber taken from the Rock of Gibraltar

In case you are interested the profile photo was taken from the Rock of Gibraltar at the entrance to the Mediterranean and it was taken in the mid 1980's

The ship which was called the TEV Canberra was my first ever cruise ship that I worked on
(I ended up spending 10 years on it)

The plane in the photo is a Canberra bomber, which was circling around the TEV Canberra whilst patrolling the waters of the British outpost of Gibraltar.



I started out gaming a very long time ago with the original D&D sets (and I mean the original!)way back in the early 1970's

Progressed onto historical figure war-gaming using 25mm lead figures and built up a substantial collection covering the ancients renaissance and medieval periods

Used the WRG (Wargames Research Group) "society of Ancients" rules- version 4 initially but preferred version 6 as well as their "pike and shot" renaissance rules

Always enjoyed board games as well and the various games clubs that I have belonged to usually covered both figures and board games.

AS figure war games declined in popularity and 15mm became much more common I started playing more and more board games.

Now I have built up a substantial board game collection limited only by my wife's lack of willingness to give additional house space to the collection

(They simply do not understand the obsessive needs of a good games collection.)

As I work at sea on board cruise ships most of the year my playing times are all or nothing - If your hear from me on BGG it's because I am presently at home.

Also because of the nature of my job i can actually add to my own flag collection as i visit lots of the more exotic areas of the world!!

I have added a flag counter as i think they are interesting to see where all the visitors come from.






My thanks to Anthony Williams who managed to come up with a working solution when the flag counter we were previously using stopped working properly on BGG
