Yesterday after school I went to a C.P.D (continuing professional development or teaching for teachers) event locally. Often CPD is not the most inspirational thing in life but yesterday's was different. It was about WW2 in Dunfermline, the role of the Home Guard and Polish troops here in the War. The talk centred round detailed maps of the defence plans for here if an invasion had come and the actual remains left such as concrete road blocks and trenches.
I had heard some it before but there were fascinating new details such as the Home Guard officer who built an armoured car (sadly no pictures) out of a Buick car. I left inspired and greatly enthused.
This morning I was looking through old photocopies and found my copy of all Charles Grant's Meccano magazine articles on WW2 wargaming.- " Introduction to Battle" ,the first of which was dated May 1968. The two things combined in my mind and an idea of an idea began to form for a new project to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the rules and combine it with a Grantian ( if I can conjure such a word up)take on modelling local buildings. An old school homage to a battle that never happened.
