We resume the story of Lt. Col. Lawford's Journey Up The Dakla River.
Zanzibar increases speed moving out of range of enemy fire.
1. Readers are kindly reminded this is Part VII of a second serial story on the Campaigns of General Pettygree blog. Part VI, The Spy, appeared here on 24 July 2011. This story and General Pettygree's Surajistan Field Force (Chapter 55 recently posted) are occurring at the same time.
2. Col. Lawford was detached from Gen. Pettygree's command due to his unique knowledge of whom he is pursuing. Tally-Ho Colonel!

7. Ahoy there lads! Your remarks are entirely welcome.
Another wonderful instalment; particularly like the photography in this one.
Remarkably lifelike, splendid composition.
I wonder if that is an old Britains hedge lurking amongst the undergrowth in the fifth photo.
Certainly the cinematics have been turned up a notch! Wonderful shots of the forested banks and the Zanzibar is brilliant. Bravo.
Great story as usual. But I just determined that the German will have the Dakla country in my storyline.
An excellent episode (as always) . . . and I'm sure that I'm not alone in finding the mystery behind this tale more interesting than the main General Pettygree storyline . . . so please give us more, sir.
Thank you sincerely for taking the time to place your kind comments here. I appreciate you for doing this very-very much.
Yes it is an old Britains hedge. Good eye there Dave!
Richard and Furt:
Good luck with your blog efforts!
Furt is right - this venture is more and more cinematic all time. Beautifully done! Trains, gunboats, forts, all kinds of troops and personalities - it is an epic that you have going on in your basement.
Amazing! What material have you used for water?
The water product is from Scenic Express here:
Amazing photos! You've definitely kicked things up a notch. I particularly like the eye-level shots, it feels like I'm in the scene.
Marvellous stuff! Keep it up!
