 Brain


 So I went to the Casemate page and found this information  Between 1940-1945  The Diamond T Motor Car Company supplied just over 50.000 Vehicles to the US Military and also the Allies  Off this just over 30,000 were heavy 4 ton 6x6 of various types  They also made the famous halftrack 10,000 produced

 Well hope everybody had a great Christmas and a Happy new Year so lets start with Helion & Company  It looks like in spring 2022 there well be a new Wars and Soldiers in the Early Reign of Louis XIV Volume 6 the Italian States. 2.  The Ottoman Army in the Napoleonic Wars 1798-1815 . Charles X Wars Volume 1 and in the spring of 2022 Volume 2  Third is From The Atamcama  to the Andies  Battles of the Pacific Wars 1878-1883 this I think is going to be a one from prints to use to paint by since this period is right after the Franko German War 1870-1871  Willie

Well my Armies of Julius Caesar came today and I like it a lot. There is one color plate B2 of  a Celtic Auxiliary Cavalryman Britannia 54 BC . What makes this guy so interesting is his Helmet I have never seen this kind :o  They state that it was found in West Sussex  and on page 45 they have a reconstruction of it in the Novium Museum Chichester  I think it would make a neat figurer  Willie
