As readers may have noticed, I've been feeling a bit low on the wargaming front lately. This was mainly due to extra-hobbatical events, but also partly as a result of the non-arrival of a trade parcel I'd been expecting from the UK. It was sent in May, had not been sighted here, and I'd given it up for lost.
But yesterday, when hope was at least a month gone, my wife banged on the door of the school with a big smile on her face, pointing to a large cardboard box that read:

So a big thank you is due to Martin K, and to the post office for finally tracking the parcel down and delivering it.
I hope I can now say that I'm out of my funk...
