Situation: Rescue Party Departure
Location: The Imperial Camp
All Right Then. Double Click Images And Look to Your Front
The Rescue Party alluded to in Chapter 40 departs as evening arrives.
More 9th Bengal Lancers pass by; supply horses in the rear.
Sgt. Davies, 10th Hussars, follows. He salutes the officers watching the departure too.
The tail of the Rescue Party; Lt. Caddy, RE, close by his vital supplies guarded by two 10th Hussars.
Darkness descends quickly in the mountainous high altitude.
Later, senior officers gather round the campfire. Their thoughts and prayers are with the rescuers, as should be ours.
1. The last image was shot using pulsating campfire light only. Other images required some distant overhead light to suggest descending dusk. It is my understanding amateur astronomers use open lens settings to capture light at night. Perhaps you can do that.
2. The campfire is from Miniature Building Authority's tent set.
3. Campfire illumination was provided by three grain of wheat light bulbs (LEDs) commonly used in model railroading connected to a switch and 9 volt battery. Pulsating lights are from Evan Designs, PO Box 2044, Broomfield, CO 80038 USA. Ask for set DC3F FIRE! I bought mine from Walthers Trains; probably the largest supplier of model railroad items in North America. Also see http://www.modeltrainsoftware.com/
4. The two chaps on the right side of the last image are Foundry Miniatures. See WWI Great War, GWB001, British Interrogation Set. Mine were specially painted by John Preece. I look forward to using them in future vignettes.
5. YOU can do this too. I had fun thinking and doing all this. Kind of different.
