It's nice to know that people appreciate what you do. So I was very happy to receive two Stylish Blogger Awards! Sometimes I think I rabbit on too much here, and I have been told its a bit academic on occasion, but it's good to know that people do read my bloggings.

1. Link back to the person giving the Award.
Thanks to Conrad Kinch and Donogh for the Awards! Conrad blogs at Joy and Forgetfulness and Donogh at Land War In Asia. Much appreciated guys!
2. Share seven things about yourself.
- Favourite music - '80s, particularly New Wave Romantic;
- Professionally I wish I had been an archaeologist, historian or tiger conservationist;
- I have never been to India despite the content of this blog;
- The name greatwhitezulu was given to me many years ago, when I was still in knickerbockers, by Harry at the now defunct Tin Soldier Sydney store due to my obsession with all things Zulu, which continues to this day;
- My favourite wargames figures ever - Minifig strip hoplites;
- Favourite Movie - 300 Spartans;
- I met Charlton Heston once. I have never met anyone else with as much presence as he.
3. Select 10-15 Blogs that you think are deserving of this Award.
Not an easy one at all! And the rule is that I shouldn't give the award to a blog already nominated, which is a shame!

- Greywolf's Last Valley - lots of pulpy goodness.
