And to you, Tim. We should all meet up in France and have a game of football on Christmas Day. Probably a bit late to organise it this year.

Don't we have to shoot someone in the Balkans first?


BTW

Indeed, Merry Christmas to all. Just wish I had a site layout ready for your present, perhaps Easter ;)
Failing that, peace and hapiness :P

To everyone on Landships - a Blessed Christmas to you and yours, may Santa Clause pack your stocking with all those dreamed-of kits and reference material.

To all those who contributed to the increase of my knowledgeduring the year - thank you for your help and enthusiasm, without you the worlds of military history and modelmaking would be much poorer places.

And finally, to all of you in the northern hemisphere, stay warm, it looks like a cold winter for you!
Regards,
Tony

it's been out for about a year. It's called Merry Christmas or Joyeux Noel. There are lots of reviews about it on the Net, but I saw it last year and posted this review:


http://www.activeboard.com/forum.spark?forumID=63528&p=3&topicID=5217451


There was a follow-up in April:


http://www.activeboard.com/forum.spark?forumID=63528&p=3&topicID=6657435


The story has been told a few times. There's a straight documentary by the BBC, and a dramatised version, which is probably the best attempt. There's also a cartoon version of it somewhere.

No disrespect to Mr. Harrison-Lever, but where did those British and German soldiers get their steel helmets from in 1914?

I guess he delivered a tank along with the helmets... To be fair to the artist, the story is set in the period after the arrival of the Diggers on the Western Front in 1916.
