I remember buying this book back in the Seventies as a brand new wargamer. I even tried to make some of the works illustrated. Ah, happy memories.

The cover illustration looks exactly like the gabions sold by Hinchliffe.

Good memories!… that's good! (smile)

Usually, a gabion is constructed with an unequal number of pickets, because thus the length of the boughs doesn't matter and you can just twist them around the pickets in a spiral, one after the other.

Bought my copy when it first was published along with some Bellona scenic pieces. Still haven't gotten around to painting them all. Where has the half century gone?
