LtC Nick Tougher of the British Territorial Army was seconded to the Miss NG (armored) for two week exercise in 1984 (when still an Officer Cadet in the North Irish Horse), and reported back to the mess that he was astonished to see CS flags on the radio antennae of tanks crewed by African Americans...

About 30 years ago there was an article in the Irish Times to the effect that the Irish Government was considering a change to have cars drive on the right - to follow French/American practice rather than British. There would be a changeover zone, funded by the EU, at all border crossings, and the c...

The Question was somewhat misleading - the majority of those in the records are no longer in the club. You have advised us of the most popular names in the Club's recent history . Is there a tendency amongst our Southern Gentlemen not to distinguish between history and current reality? :wink: I rema...

Gettysburg is fought at the height of summer in brutal heat with little shade on many roads There are no major rivers near Gettysburg (Monocacy/Pipe Creek). The wells could not support the armies, and the poor old mules are at the tail of the line for watering. Their little butts are dragging. The c...

What are the criteria? If we take the current OOBs and exclude discharged/retires/hospitalised and go for common spelling then James and David would tie for first with John a close third If you admit variants Dave/David, Jim/James, Mike/Michael/Miguel, and Bob/Rob/Robert/Roberto, but not John/Jon (o...

Stonewall hardly shines in the Peninsula Campaign, but he was new to corps command at the time. He did not reconnoitre effectively ahead of the Cedar Mountain battle either. His Shenandoah campaign was largely made possible by Ashby winning the recon phase of the campaign - admittedly against very l...

Seniority? He was chosen Army Commander (of the AotT)over John Logan, who was not a career soldier. (ring knockers rule?) I believe he was less than a month senior to Logan as a Major General, but even one day counts. Howard had after all been commanding a Corps (even with mishaps) while Logan was s...

So who did run away from Jackson at Chancellorsville? In support of your case for 11 Corps, most authors agree that they did much better in the West (under new leadership). (This has been advanced as an argument that the Western armies were inferior to those in the East). Howard tried to blame Doubl...

Joe
You are right - I ran a dummy campaign and it came up for the US player to set the rules for game 1 and the CS player to set the rules for the second game - that must have been when the game engine reset the options.

Thanks for the pointers

Ian

Generals In the HPS Chickamauga campaign series the options rules appear to be set for the entire campaign at the beginning of the campaign, and the player interface does not offer the possibility of resetting between battles, so I do not understand Joe's suggestion of manually resetting. The game e...

There was a 1950s B movie set in West Texas during the Great Rebellion. One of the stars was Ronald Reagan. The plot was far fetched - gallant Rebels helping Federal troops defend a town against hostile Native Americans who had been incited by the CS Sec War to go raiding. There were also some comic...

Gentlemen I recall, but cannot find, a thread which advised that if a player has two games open simultaneously with different optional rules, the game engine will apply the same set of optional rules to both. Is that correct? I am on the second game of a campaign, and the optional rules have changed...

"Do not talk to me of Naval Traditions sir, the traditions of the Royal Navy are rum, sodomy, and the lash" Winston S Churchill, to First Sea Lord Fisher, ca. 1912 Following this remark, Sec Def made the ships of the US Navy "dry" in 1914. Possibly a non sequitur? Ian Miller Lt G...

Why Sir, I would join the cavalry. I have already done my share of marching and foot patrols, and would willingly allow some one else to stand in the line of battle and "seek the bauble reputation in the cannon's mouth". In answer to the rhetorical question "Who ever saw a dead cavalr...

Knowing the Company, interrogation at campwould have followed generous circulation of good Irish Whiskey; so if the Reb was TT, that could explain his aversion to good spirits
