Merry Christmas to all at Warlord and on the forum. Thanks for everything you've done to keep us demanding forum dwellers happy over the last year. Looking forward to 2012 and all the goodies you will be bringing to us!
My girlfriend got it for me. 1878 Highland officer's serge frock pattern. It has still the pre 1881 buttons. It was made for a 92nd Officer, the Gordon Highlanders. Coming out of a collection of genuine items, I got some named items out of it before.
The flash makes it only slighty brighter, it is made in the correct officer's colour that was brighter than the OR's one. In 1879 the regiment was out "playing" with the Afghans. Awfull X-mas for them outside Kabul.
Hope you all have a better one than they had.

You know, Sir Rick has a nice ring to it. Perhaps we should start a campaign to have him knighted, for contributions beyond the ordinary to the world and to that of the miniature wargamer.
To Sir Rick!
There can be no doubt that the success of the attack on and stand against the enemy at St. Lambert sur Dives can largely be attributed to this officer’s coolness ... London Gazette, no.36812, 27 November 1944
