For many years Bob and I had been on at Jack to make a Standard Bearer for his White Coated Russian army and it had always fallen on deaf ears. Quite literally at times as Jack's hearing has a nasty habit of coming and going very dramatically! At 90 you can't really moan.
When we met with Mark Lodge the new owner of the Jacklex range Bob, Jack and I discussed the need for various figures to finish this range and again top of our priority list was a standard bearer. Imagine my surprise and delight when I return from a family holiday to Portugal to find a small package containing 6 Russian standard bearers.
Now I am still awaiting the operation on my cataract but I thought I would nevertheless give them ago. Not my finest work but they do add something to Jack's Russian army. The flags are a free download from the 1866 and all that blog http://stracmark.blogspot.com/p/free-stuff.html .
Each regiment should have 2 flags but I only had 6 standard bearers for now!
Needless to say my eye did let me down and I discovered that I had managed to stick one of the flags on upside down!
