There was a clipping today in the paper about the Brubberband Heavy Artillery Regiment. Colonel Oldstash Banghum's boys were getting to fire off the big guns for the Departmental Winter Maneuvers.

It appears that a sham battle was played out with elements of the local garrisons, against the Experimental Armor Force. I'm wondering how that played out... I understand the column had problems with communications and fighting the mud.
an informant in the paper suggests the TKSes did very well, and I bet I'll be hearing that they will be the top choice for arming the Uhlan regiments.
Meanwhile, I didn't feel too well, and niether did the Spouse so we took a late bracing walk out on the Rue Latte for drinks. I chose the diet sam's cola, a common vintage, but easy on the budget.
It was a lovely evening for a stroll, but we were glad to be back home. I dug around trying to find out more about the local maneuvers and consulted my maps... It would seem the armor was trying to move down the Rush creek line towards Souppot, so I called a friend down at Moldstews, and she told me they'd been going at it hammer and tongs in the direction of the Potomacancheese River, making "a dreadful din" and interrupting her watercress sandwiches. I tendered apologies on behalf of the Fabulouth Armee, and we had a nice laugh.
