Captain D, thanks for asking George, I suspect one of my Resistance Lewis gunners or the forthcoming Aussie Hone Guard from Eureka will provide me with a figure for that. Looking at the pics, I think I met George either at Cancon or Little Wars Adelaide some years back.

Turkey Shoot appears to be OOP but I suspect FFoL might be appropriate.

I was thinking of a Stutz Bearcat for the vehicle although a Corgi Crossley might do for the bus.

I have 5 or 6 Emus in my collection but I think I need more and I might need a couple of Emu General Emus as well. Any suggestions for sources (plastic acceptable for herd)?
Cheers,
Poiter50

Hey Poiter50, yes George has been to those events!

Re the Salmson I haven’t found one around with the boat tail design I’d think a Bugatti boat tail speedster may be an okay substitute and the Model of Yesteryear Crossley would make a good ‘old bus’.

I’ve PMed you.

Cheers!

One of the great, forgotten campaigns of Australian history. That there isn't a memorial and display commemorating this at the AWM is a crime.

Also, that's one of the great gaming tables of Australian history!  :-*
