I've finished my Royal Navy contingent for my Suakin campaign … well, until I start work on the armed train.


From the left: HMS Hecla's company of Blue Jackets, commanded by Captain Arthur Wilson; HMS Carysfort's RMLI company, Gatling gun battery, and company of Blue Jackets; rear: Private Thomas Edwards (1 Black Watch) with a pair of ammunition mules; front: Vice-Admiral Sir William Hewett VC KCB and staff.

Wilson and Edwards would be awarded VCs for their actions at second El Teb and Tamai respectively.

Nice a great little project. One day I will get my own naval brigade together for my Darkest Africa games. The old jack tars turned up all over Africa from Sudan to Natal and plenty of places in between

Thank you all for your kind comments.

@79thPA The limber team is a conversion of Perry Miniatures American Civil War plastic limber with wheels from the Gardner machine gun model, and slightly modified ‘running st the trail' ratings. The whole story is here:
