Five years ago, to the day, I started writing KeepYourPowderDry. And I'm still prattling on. I never really intended for anyone else to read my blog, it was a receptacle for lots of little notes to myself.

So I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who has read, linked, had kind words to say, or supported via buy me a coffee. It really is quite humbling. Thanks
(You'll be saddened to hear that the next 15 weeks of posts are already in the queue for publication 😉)

Thanks for publishing over the years. I look forward to each installment to ooh and ahh over the figures.

It is one of my favorite blogs, thank you for sharing it with us.

Thank you both. You be pleased/saddened to hear (delete as appropriate) that I have enough material in the pipeline to keep going with a weekly post until mid-June.

I agree with the above posters. When I got back into the ECW (I have no Scottish or Irish formations in my armies) I found your blog to be a godsend. Thanks!

You're the only reason I come here to see your units, travels etc. Thank you for all your efforts. There is so much history and information on your blog.

I'v only recently discovered your blog and it's been a great resource. Thanks for your efforts.

Such an awesome blog, may you never stop! So many have turned to video, which I find tiresome as you can never zoom in on the goodies! And congrats also on being one of the few bloggers who know how to make use of tags. You da man! Now go treat yourself to a pack of Beer Lao.

Again, thanks for all the very kind comments.
