General Pettygree presents his next Battlestory here:
In the air, on the sea and on land, the General describes an imagineered and unique day of gaming on WWII New Guinea. His usual format is briefly captioned photos woven together in what some call a movie serial. Certainly the style is story telling.
Take a look, if you please.

Enjoyed the writeup. Always follow the General's adventures when you post them: good example tying together a lot of the facets of our hobby: excellent figures and terrain, realistic scenario, appropriate tactics, and, most of all,imagination. Thanks for sharing the general with the rest of us.

The general reminds me of (sergeant major) Higgins from the old Magnum pi TV show.
based on how much he got around and fought in different theaters, you have to ask, "just how old is he?"

Your appreciation is always gratifying! The general is ageless. He is patterned after Dr. Watson. The Sherlock Holmes stories were at first published in a literary form by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle writing as Dr. Watson in the 1880s-90s+. Later the stories moved farther ahead in time in stage and motion picture presentations such as with celebrated actors Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce in the 1940s. Plus, there have been television offerings in modern times. Presentations move forward and backward in time settings. Neither Dr. Watson or Holmes age. Nor does General Pettygree.
Thank you very much for your interest and readership.
