Wednesday 29th November.
|The fake battlefield|
|The real battlefield.|
Headed out west this evening to the Little Big Horn river which just for this evening was situated in the village of Bellesquarry near Livingstone,home of that great big chief Bill Gilchrist where five of us gathered to re-enact that fateful day in June 1876 where George Armstrong Custer's vanity got the better of him.The only difference this evening was that the participants were all in the form of Playmobil figures all neatly harvested by Bill's wheelings and dealings.
|Perusing the battlefield.Notice that quick turn of hand by the chief skulker.|
|An American looking at a better picture of his homeland.|
|The man himself-George Armstrong Custer.|
|And with his wee brother.|
|Hail to the Redskins.|
|The forlorn hope.|
|Mr Ray's contingent.|
|Not for use.|
|Buffalo on the hoof.|
|Caught under a buffalo stampede.|
|Back home on the reservation.|
|Chief Crazy Horse.|
|Charge(in Red Indian).|
|Lock and load!|
|Initial success-not for long.|
|"What I say goes"|
|"Here they come"|
|The corned beef on the hoof wins.|
|Weight of hoofs.|
|At last Mr Ray comes to grip.|
|And starts to do some damage.|
|Mr Ray gives them a helping hand.|
|Meanwhile back at the ranch|
|Last man standing|
|He died with his plastic boots on.|
|Mr Ray and Donald have a pow-wow.|
All figures and scenery provided from Bill Gilchrist's ever growing Playmobil collection
And many thanks to his wife Helena for providing an excellent meal to start the proceedings obviously thinking again that we all needed fed up.
See You All When I See You.
