10,000 pageviews in almost exactly six months! Who would have thought that this humble little of blog of mine would attract so many visits and positive comments. I cannot thank enough, those that follow and take the time to post comments, ideas or suggestions; it is your contributions that help to maintain my enthusiasm for this project.
Having never managed a 'blog' before this has all been a bit of a learning curve but one that I have thoroughly enjoyed particularly the sense of community that I have discovered exists around this most engaging of hobbies. With so much more to achieve I'm looking forward to '28mm Victorian Warfare's' continued development. Thank you all once again!
Incidentally the photograph used to illustrate this post is one of the residency at Lucknow during the Indian Mutiny. Originally an albumen silver print 23.6 x 28.7 cm, the following text is quoted from the Brown University Library and its Anne S. K. Brown Military Collection:
Formerly occupied by Sir Henry Lawrence, Chief Commissioner of Oudh, at the outbreak of the mutiny, the Residency became the last defended place for the British. The building was crammed with soldiers and civilians. "There is not one hole or corner where one can enjoy an instant's privacy," wrote one lady in her journal. The posed figure on the far right stands in front of the room where Lawrence was killed.
