Salute 2018 - The Pics


I've been a very busy boy this week hence the late post for last weeks wargaming 
extravaganza that is Salute 2018.
I took stacks of photos using my phone, now here is my problem.....a few months ago I had an update on my ever trusty phone, now it takes rather crap photos, so unfortunately some of the photos had to go in the bin.


We'd only just walked in the doors nice and early around 8:30ish!!
And who'd we bump into, none other than Mr League of Augsburg himself, Barry Hilton, 
who came back for a selfie with the Rejects.
