“‘Let battle begin!’ —Donald Featherstone (right) explaining the wargame to actress Annette Whiteley and Major York of the Middlesex Yeomanry.”  From Henry Harris’ 1969 book How to Go Collecting Model Soldiers; image via The Courier magazine’s Timeline of the Historical Miniatures Wargaming Hobby.
This is some real old school gaming, before some historical miniatures gamers thought to pit a few medieval miniatures against some dime store toy monsters, and before there was a “Games Workshop Hobby”.
