More local history ....

Pershore Bridge was the centre of a skirmish in June 1644. King Charles was returning to Worcester from the siege of Oxford with Parliamentarian troops in pursuit. Charles ordered the bridge destroyed but the task was only partially complete when their pursuers caught up with them. In the ensuing melted the bridge was blown and 40 men drowned.


With the outbreak of WW2, the bridge was blocked with concrete anti tank obstacles.



Managed to get a little painting done, some more skimmers and drones for my Algoryn forces for Beyond the Gates of Antares.


I've started work on the ECW forces for The Pikemans Lament and I have another Stryker book to read on my hols for inspiration.
