Deadbeat Advertiser?!?!?!?

I just noticed that I have been listed as a deadbeat advertiser at The Miniatures Page. I asked Mr Armintrout over 12 months ago to cease the advertising due to a number of issues that I had with his site and his ethics...anyway, good luck to Mr Armintrout and to the continued success of his numerous business enterprises

What would you like to see next?

Let me know and I will see what we can do.

Well, I am really back this time...

Things have been quite hectic/ depressing/  traumatic/ (insert adjective here) over the last 10 months. This is the first time I have been back to the blog. Good to see that there are still hits every day!

Just when I thought I had all things sorted in October they came back with a vengeance. On top of it all now.  Things will get better around here. Time to start dusting out the place.

A disappointing book...

Military Flags of India from the Earliest Times was very promising when I read the review. Unfortunately for my purposes there was not a lot of interest. To be honest, there was nothing  of interest. The book was published by BR Publishing of Delhi in 2011. There are 126 pages of text and 64 plates.

There are 16 pages of text dealing with Moghul flags and two disappointing plates:

The strength of this book is for the post British period, dealing at length with flags of the modern Indian armed forces. 35 of the 64 plates outline those flags. There is one (1) flag relating to the Mutiny. Essentially, all the other flags relate to the ancient and early medieval period. Many of the plates, other than those of the modern period, are black and white.
