A pair of historic British infantry standards, which help to illustrate today's off-topic post rather nicely.
It's been some time since I have had one of those dreams. Relax boys! I mean a toy soldier dream that I remember the next morning.
My dream last night was a little different in that it was actually a painting table dream, and I was painting. . . A gosling green infantry standard for some Napoleonic battalion with green facings. Can't recall which regiment, but in the dream I was actually adding lighter green highlights to some of the folds, and there were 50 or so red-coated figures already on the table in the background awaiting their glossy coats of varnish. That's all I remember. At some later point, I woke up.
Profoundly disturbing, and it can mean only one thing. At some subconscious level, I am thinking of Napoleonics once again. "Madness" to borrow a word from Young and Lawford's Charge! Or How to Play War Games. Someone. Anyone. Help me! Please.
