One for the Pot!

Purely as a piece of frippery, and of course as an excuse to get the Dodo birds onto the table, we have here a somewhat slightly alternative reality where a small detachment of British infantry stop off on the Island of Mauritius en route to Australia.  Whilst taking the opportunity to stretch their legs, and test the new fangled daguerreotype camera the shore patrol also looked to subsidise their meagre rations of hardtack, or ship's biscuits, by hunting for some fresh meat.

And so we have it, the last known photographic evidence of the now extinct Dodo, (Raphus Cuculatus) may he rest in peace.


  1. Nicely put together picture set, and nice painting on the models.

  2. Thanks Smillie, it was a bit of a giggle to do as well.

  3. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
