All is well...

Thanks to those who gave me the advise on being able to rectify the tear in the Sudan plane of existence and revert to exclusively COLONIAL posts on this particular blog.  Thank goodness for you clever folks indeed who helped me open, edit, copy and paste.  I could have sworn I had tried that however...alls well that ends well.

So what better way to celebrate than to post a few photos which may have not been put up on the blog before, or if they have, deserve a second showing.
  
Despite popular belief the red coats were occasionally STILL trotted out during the Sudan campaigns, often
to impress the enemy troops they were about to fight.  Here some skirmishers get ready to "stick it up 'em".

On the painting table at present I have the Naval Brigade following a fresh coat of varnish and a tidy up of their basing as well as a few more older Connoisseur Beja "Fuzzy Wuzzies" that looked like they needed a touch up after a few too many rumbles in the desert.
