Postie, Dave and me drove up to Crystal Palace for our annual trip to SELWG. And what a great day it was too!!! We met up with many of our Wargaming friends and associates including Reject Richard with no James in toe for the first time in a long time, (he's a teenager now and gaming with Dad is not his no1 priority!!! He will return one day) Also met up with Bob Cordry, Tamsin, Al, Simon Miller and Steve from General Reeve
We arrived around 20 minutes before opening time, so weren't far from the front of the queue.

T'was great to finally meet General Reeve. We've spoke several times about meeting up at a show but its never happened until now, we just happened to bump into each other on the stairs. Was great to have the all to brief chat, hopefully the next time will be a little longer.
And there we have it! Another SELWG over for another year!
Great show lads keep up the excellent work.
