Don’t remember the Men Will Be Boys clip but I’ve seen the other two before.
I still don’t know how you make model soldiers as shown from compressed paper(commentary on the Cushing piece) and wonder if something didn’t get a bit confused in the script writing phase.
Also a very useful reminder to view even contemporary sources with some reserve – some of the painting and modelling techniques have more than a faint whiff of ‘well just pretend to be doing something to the figure then’ stage direction.
Interesting – are there any scraps of mainstream ‘human interest’ (filler) reportage being made about current wargaming which will intrigue future generations of social historians I wonder?
Proper dress though – no joggers or hoodies in sight.
Not surprised we (insert old codger refrain of choice) since then – no standards these days (etc).
