55 Minutes at Peking assistance, please.
« on: April 07, 2018, 03:10:24 AM »
I have issue 27 of Wargames Illustrated that has the 'original' WI article on the game 55 Minutes at Peking and I'm sure there was a later issue with additional photos of the game but danged if I can find it in my collection.  Can anyone offer assistance?  Much appreciated if so. 

Working towards a convention game next year with a friend.

Thanks!

Hi there. Had a senior moment. Sent you a PM saying I may have the article somewhere. Forgot about the interweb thingy. Go on the website for Staines Wargamers & the rules & pictures are there.
An inspiring game from some inspirational blokes...

Hi again.
I went on the website myself for the sake of nostalgia. There is only an overview of this particular game regrettably, so I have dug out my copy of the original article. I will email what I have if you PM me your contact details.

If you can identify the issue, I should have it.  I have all WI issues from 1 to 180 and sporadically after that.  Also have WW 1-4.  I've already been through issues 28 through 70 and didn't find it.  Started to think it may have been photos before issue 27 where I saw the photos.  Thanks for the replies.

Instincts were right.  Finally found some time to get back to the hunt and the other image was in issue 26, one issue Before 27.  Yay.  Shows Russian and part of the American legation better.

Alasdair spent twelve months in China and made a point of visiting all the Legation remains he could find and taking photos.

Does Alasdair share the photos somewhere online where we can check them out?

I'm hoping there might be a link where the rest of us can see photos of this game. It sounds inspirational!
