Battle of the Plains of Abraham

     The Quebec landing Barge, 1758 (c). This type of barge was used during General Wolfe's landing at Quebec in 1759. It was developed around 1758 for use in seaborne attacks on French ports. Assault landing techniques were devised with the aid of Royal Navy officers, and as well as at Quebec, spectacularly successful results were achieved during the Seven Years War (1756-1763) at Louisbourg (Cape Breton, Canada) in 1758 and at the Spanish fortress of Havana (Cuba) in 1762.
     Captain James Cook the famous British Explorer was a young MASTER on HMS Pembroke during the Quebec Siege, and was placed in charge of organizing the Landing barges
     The boat is produced in 3 main pieces, so that the set can be displayed on its own stand, or as a waterline model. The boat has 13 crew and 24 Grenadiers.
     The components of the barge will be released over 3 months.  The Barge will be released in February, the Crew in March, and the Grenadiers in April.  The complete barge as pictured above is comprised of 1 QBOAT01, 1 QBOAT02, and 2 QBOAT03.

     The 15th Regiment of Foot was raised in 1685 under Sir William Clifton, and was known as Clifton's Regiment of Foot. In 1702, the regiment formed part of Marlborough's Army, distinguishing itself at the battles of Blenheim, Ramilles, Malplaquet and Oudenarde.
     The regiment was numbered the 15th Regiment of Foot in 1751 and was heavily engaged during the French and Indian War. The 15th Foot "took the fort" at Louisburg in 1758 and was part of General Wolfe's Army fighting on the Plains of Abraham, above the city of Quebec, on September 13, 1759.  The 15th Regiment of Foot saw action during the defense of Quebec and took part in the expedition against Montreal in 1760.
     Two of the large sets (QBOAT03) or 6 of the small sets (QBOAT03D) will fill the barge.

Wheels Across the Desert

     In 1915, Egypt was the centre of the war effort in the near East. Units would strike westwards into the Sahara desert to deal with dissident tribes who were goaded into action by the Turks, or were sent northwards into Gaza to confront the Turkish army itself.
     The Sennussi were a warlike Arab religious sect encouraged by the Turks to tie down as many British troops as possible. Model T Ford cars, escorted by Rolls- Royce armoured cars were used to patrol the desert, and to launch daring raids against the Sennussi.  The most important British armoured car of the first World War was undoubtedly the Rolls-Royce. In terms of the numbers built, effective design and all round quality it was unequalled, and is now taken to typify the vintage armoured car.
     The Hedjaz Armoured Car Section, was an unit of three Rolls Royce armoured cars, which operated alongside the irregular forces inspired and guided by T.E Lawrence. This unit also acted independently and mounted long range raids, such as the succesful raid against the Amman railway bridge in September 1918.  The armoured cars earned Lawrence’s respect for their reliability and effectiveness, and in his “Seven Pillars of Wisdom” he mentions that “a Rolls in the desert was above rubies”.

Raid on St. Francis

    A military engineer's position in the 18th century can be reduced down to two things, building and destroying forts. An engineer in the 18th century were mainly classically trained military engineers. They constructed forts, and if attacking forts, their job was to determine the most effective method of destroying the fort.  They were also architects, since an engineer also designed the buildings inside the fort.
     There were three basic levels of engineers — the lowest level built houses and such mundane buildings, then the military engineer who built forts, and the top level, the castle builders. None of these engineers really had the social position we associate with engineers today. Today, an engineer holds an elevated and respected position in society. In the 18th century there was a real prejudice against men who worked with their hands rather than their minds. A Gentleman would not condescend to do that. People of the middle or lower class who labored were hired for these positions. An engineer in the 18
th Century would rank somewhere around a master stone mason or a master carver.

Knights of the Skies

     James Bigglesworth, nicknamed "Biggles", is a fictional pilot and adventurer, the title character and main hero of the Biggles series of youth-oriented adventure books written by W. E. Johns (1893–1968).  Biggles first appears as a teenaged "scout" (fighter) pilot in the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) during World War I. He has joined the RFC in 1916 at the age of 17, having conveniently "lost" his birth certificate. Biggles represents a particularly "British" hero, combining professionalism with a gentlemanly air. Under the stress of combat he develops from a slightly hysterical youth prone to practical jokes to a calm, confident, competent leader. He is occasionally given "special" (secret) missions by the shadowy figure of Colonel (initially Major) Raymond (Wing Commander/Air Commodore in later books, reflecting the creation of the Royal Air Force with its own ranks), who is already involved with the intelligence side of operations. Biggles is accompanied by his cousin Algernon ('Algy') Lacey and his mechanic Flight Sergeant Smyth, who are to accompany Biggles on his adventures after the war; added to the team in 1935 is the teenager Ginger Hebblethwaite.
     Algernon Montgomery Lacey or “Algy” is a cousin of Biggles, who is posted to Biggles' flight in 266 Squadron by the influence of his aunt. Despite initial misgivings, the two soon become very close friends and eventually Algy adopts the role of Biggles' second in command. In the books set in the 1930s, Algy, Ginger and Smyth become Biggles' regular companions.
     W.E. Johns was a First World War pilot, although his own career did not parallel that of Biggles particularly closely. The author's initial war service was with the infantry, fighting at Gallipoli and on the Macedonian front. He was commissioned, seconded into the RFC in September 1917 and posted back to England for flight training, serving in England as a flying instructor until August 1918 when he transferred to the Western Front. On 16 September 1918 his De Havilland DH4 was shot down on a bombing raid. His observer, Lieutenant Amey, was killed (in two of the stories in Biggles Learns to Fly observers flying with Biggles are killed or badly wounded) but Johns survived to be taken prisoner of war. Johns remained with the RAF until 1927, although his final rank was Flying Officer (equivalent to Lieutenant in the RFC) rather than the "Captain" of his pen name.

The Age of Arthur

     Berserkers (or berserks) were Norse warriors who are primarily reported in the Old Norse literature to have fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury, a characteristic which later gave rise to the English word berserk.  They were said to wear the pelt of a wolf when they entered battle and are sometimes described as Odin's special warriors: "[Odin's] men went without their mailcoats and were mad as hounds or wolves, bit their shields...they slew men, but neither fire nor iron had effect upon them. This is called 'going berserk'."

Raid on St. Francis

     In 1758, the 80th Regiment of Light Armed Foot, otherwise known as Gage's Light Infantry became the British army's first light infantry regiment.  They were unique in the fact that the soldiers of the 80th were issued brown uniforms instead of the traditional madder red worn by all of the British regiments at the time.  The headgear of Gage's Light Infantry was different from the cocked hat or "tricorn" hat that most regiments of foot wore, the men of Gage's were given caps or helmets of leather, and they would receive their nickname from their distinctive headgear - "the leathercaps."

The Conquest of America

     The Carignan-Salières was formed from two existing regiments: the Balthasar Regiment, formed during the Thirty Years' War and becoming the Salières when Balthasar died in 1665, and the Carignan Regiment, formed in 1644 in Piedmont. Following the Treaty of the Pyrenees in 1659, both regiments avoided disbandment by merging to form the Carignan-Salières Regiment.
     In 1664, following the request of the Sovereign Council, the French finance minister Jean-Baptiste Colbert ordered the Carignan-Salières to reinforce the existing 100 man force in New France.
     The arrival of the Carignan-Salières Regiment, accompanied by De Tracy’s companies, marks an important moment in Canadian history. In 1665, 1300 soldiers landed in the small colony of barely 3000 inhabitants to establish peace with the Iroquois who were terrorizing the colonists. But this was not their sole aim: Louis XIV hoped the soldiers would settle in New France. Indeed, some 400 elected to stay, thereby saving the colony and becoming the forefathers of thousands of Quebecers and other North Americans.

The Great War
The American Expeditionary Forces

     Mack AC "Bulldog" haulers are legendary workhorses. During their 20-plus years of production (1916-1939), they were employed in many heavy industries including logging, petroleum, construction, and nearly anywhere a rock-solid chassis cab was needed. They were available with up to a 7.5-ton load capacity. The U.S. military made extensive use of the AC during WWI. Many of them remained in the countries where they served and were put to use by civilians for decades afterward.  Mack delivered over 6,000 trucks, both to the United States and Britain's military. A legend surfaced that British soldiers would call for Mack Bulldogs to be sent when facing adversity.
     Mack Trucks, Inc., is an American truck–manufacturing company and a former manufacturer of buses and trolley buses. Founded in 1900 as the Mack Brothers Company, it manufactured its first truck in 1907 and adopted its present name in 1922.

The German Army

     The STURMPANZER A7V was a tank introduced by Germany in 1918, during World War I. One hundred chassis were ordered in early 1917, ten to be finished as fighting vehicles with armoured bodies, and the remainder as cargo carriers. The number to be armoured was later increased to 20. They were used in action from March to October of that year, and were the only tanks produced by Germany in World War I to be used in operations.
     Unlike modern tanks, the A7V has no turret. Instead, it has a cupola for the commander and driver, and its main gun, a 57mm Maxim-Nordenfelt, is carried in a mounting in the front, allowing limited traverse. Six Maxim 08 machine guns are carried in mountings, two on each side and two to the rear.
     The crew normally consisted of up to seventeen soldiers and one officer: commander (officer, typically a lieutenant), driver, mechanic, mechanic/signaller, twelve infantrymen (six machine gunners, six loaders), and two artillerymen (main gunner and loader)

     Sturmpanzer A7V, named “Mephisto”, and numbered 506, was originally a 1st Lot, standard-production model produced by the Rochling factory, and was initially a female tank, only armed with machine guns. It was to be converted to a “buck-mount” male, and is today the only original A7V tank to survive.
    In April 1918, the tank was issued to Abt.3, and was repainted and named “Mephisto”, with its upper left prow decorated just before the Battle of Villers-Bretonneux, with the emblem of a red devil running with a snatched British rhomboid tank.  It was to participate in the Battle of Villers-Bretonneux, but after a successful advance, which saw it take a large number of prisoners, it became disabled as it plunged into a large shell hole. The crew abandoned the tank, and went on to fight as an assault party.  Initially the tank remained inside the German lines, but was too close to the frontline for recovery. During this time it was hit by at least one shell in the forward fighting compartment, and Australian reports also claim that the tank was used as a strongpoint by German infantry

The French Army
Special 10th Anniversary Edition

     The Saint-Chamond was the second French heavy tank of the First World War, with 400 manufactured from April 1917 to July 1918. Born of the commercial rivalry existing with the makers of the Schneider CA1 tank, the Saint-Chamond was an inadequate underpowered design. Its principal weakness was the "caterpillar" tracks. They were much too short in relation to the vehicle's length and heavy weight (23 tons ). Later models, however, attempted to rectify some of the tank's original flaws by installing wider and stronger track shoes, thicker frontal armor and the more effective 75mm M1897 field gun. The Saint-Chamond tanks remained engaged in various actions until the late summer of 1918, belatedly becoming more effective since combat had moved out of the trenches and onto open ground . Eventually, however, the Saint-Chamond tanks were scheduled to be entirely replaced by imported British heavy tanks.

th June 1918, during a French counterattack triggered by the German offensive on the Matz River on the 9th June, Char St. Chamond No. 62668 of the second battery of AS 38 was captured by the German Infantry Regiment No.91 at Lataule. The vehicle which displayed the name “Petit Jean” (Little John), also the slogan “Pas Kamarad” (No Mercy) and the image of a crocodile, had apparently got lost and finally became stuck in a cemetery wall.  Luckily for the French crew, the Germans did not heed the slogan, “Pas Kamarad”, and Marechal de Logis Durand and his crew went into captivity unharmed.
     The tank was salvaged with the assistance of an A7V, and sent to B.A.K.P 20, where it was recorded as being under reconstruction. Apparently the intent of the German mechanical engineers, was to study the vehicles petro-electrical transmission, rather than converting it into a German fighting tank.

     For John Jenkins Designs 10th Anniversary there is this special version of the St. Chamond.  And every 10th set will include the tank riders as a bonus!

Knights of the Skies
Fokker Eindecker EII

     The SPAD S.XIII was a French biplane fighter aircraft of World War I, developed by Société Pour L'Aviation et ses Dérivés (SPAD) from the earlier highly successful SPAD S.VII. It was one of the most capable fighters of the war, and one of the most-produced, with 8,472 built and orders for around 10,000 more cancelled at the armistice.
    
Georges Guynemer started flying this machine in late July, 1917 and went on to score his 53
rd victory on 20th August 1917. Unfortunately this was the plane in which Guynemer was to mysteriously go missing in, on 11th September 1917. Guynemer failed to return from the combat mission on 11 September 1917. At 08:30, with rookie pilot Jean Bozon-Verduraz, Guynemer took off in his Spad XIII S.504 n°2. His mission was to patrol the Langemark area. At 09:25, near Poelkapelle, Guynemer sighted a lone Rumpler, a German observation plane, and dove toward it. Bozon-Verduraz saw several Fokkers above him, and by the time he had shaken them off, his leader was nowhere in sight, so he returned alone. Guynemer never came back.

     It was a French journalist who explained to schoolchildren, "Captain Guynemer flew so high he could not come down again."

The War of the Roses


 

     The Wars of the Roses were a series of dynastic wars for the throne of England. They were fought between supporters of two rival branches of the royal House of Plantagenet, the houses of Lancaster and York. They were fought in several sporadic episodes between 1455 and 1487, although there was related fighting before and after this period. The conflict resulted from social and financial troubles that followed the Hundred Years' War, combined with the mental infirmity and weak rule of Henry VI, which revived interest in the alternative claim to the throne of Richard, Duke of York.
     The final victory went to a claimant of the Lancastrian party, Henry Tudor, who defeated the last Yorkist king, Richard III, at the Battle of Bosworth Field. After assuming the throne as Henry VII, Henry Tudor married Elizabeth of York, the eldest daughter and heiress of Edward IV, thereby uniting the two claims. The House of Tudor ruled England and Wales until 1603

The Battle of Bosworth Field

     The Battle of Bosworth (or Bosworth Field) was the last significant battle of the Wars of the Roses, the civil war between the Houses of Lancaster and York that raged across England in the latter half of the 15th century. Fought on 22 August 1485, the battle was won by the Lancastrians. Their leader Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, by his victory became the first English monarch of the Tudor dynasty. His opponent, Richard III, the last king of the House of York, was killed in the battle. Historians consider Bosworth Field to mark the end of the Plantagenet dynasty, making it a defining moment of English and Welsh history.

     By the time of the Wars Of The Roses, badges were of considerable importance. These along with the Livery Colours were closely associated with what was then known as Livery and Retaining (Bastard Feudalism).  The badges were rarely worn by their owners, for they were marks of ownership. They were, however, worn by his servants, house-hold men, retainers, and probably temporarily by the adherents to his cause.
     So great and extensive was the use of these badges, that they were far more generally employed than the coat of arms. For where a man’s badge would be common knowledge and bear some repute throughout the kingdom, few people would know what his coat of arms looked like.

The Lancastrian Army

     Having not fought in any battles, Henry Tudor was not regarded as much of a warrior. Chroniclers of the period found him more interested in commerce and finance. Having spent the first fourteen years of his life in Wales and the next fourteen in Brittany and France, Henry Tudor was therefore unfamiliar with the arts of war and a stranger to the land he was trying to conquer. But he was known as being strong and decisive.  Henry recruited several experienced veterans on whom he could rely for military advice and the command of his armies, most notably John de Vere, 13th Earl of Oxford, who was Henry's principal military commander.  Henry Tudor decided to commit most of his small force into one single large division or “battle” and place it under the command of the Earl of Oxford

     In an effort to destroy Henry Tudor, Richard decided to leave his position on Ambion Hill, leading his household retainers down the slope, thundering towards Henry’s men with levelled lances. 
     A few of the key personalities involved in King Richard’s heroic last charge will be available in the summer.  King Richard III and his standard bearer, Sir Percival Thirlwall, charge towards Henry Tudor and his standard bearer William Brandon.

Raid on St. Francis
60th (Royal Americans) Regiment of Foot

The 60th (Royal American) Regiment of Foot, better known under its later name, The King's Royal Rifle Corps, has long been associated with Canada. After Braddock's defeat by the French and Indians in 1755, authority was granted to raise a regiment of four battalions to be recruited in Germany and from German colonists in North America. The regiment was named the 62nd, or Royal American, Regiment of Foot; but it was re-designated the 60th (Royal American) Regiment of Foot in February 1757. Recruiting for the Royal Americans in North America was disappointing, and more than half its strength was drafted from men rejected by British regiments in Ireland. From this unlikely collection of foreigners and cast-offs was fashioned one of the most renowned corps of the British Army

New Jersey Provincial Regiment

The Jersey Blues were raised in 1755, by the New Jersey provincial government. It was originally composed of five companies, and was sent to the northern frontier, to guard it against the French. They were known as the "Jersey Blues", partly from the blue coats of the regiment, and partly from the similarity of the uniform to that New Jersey used in the war of Jenkin's Ear. On April 4 1758, the General Assembly of New Jersey voted to increase the regiment to a strength of 1,000 officers and men, including 100 grenadiers.

     In the year 1739, the six independent companies of the "Highland Watch", along with four newly-raised companies, were incorporated into a Regiment of Foot under John, the Earl of Crawford. This Regiment was originally numbered the 43rd Highland Regiment, but was renumbered as the 42nd in 1749.
     The 42nd was sent to New York in 1756, and fought in the first battle of Fort Ticonderoga in 1758, losing over half its troops in a valiant assault on the breastworks. Prior to the action at Ticonderoga, the 42nd was given the distinction of being a "Royal" regiment, changing the uniform's facings from buff to royal blue, and earning the right to bear a distinctive seal on the colours and drums. The regiment was known from then on as The 42nd (Royal Highland) Regiment or Royal Highlanders.

     The 42nd is rich in tradition from the battle. Foremost is the account surrounding the death of the regiment’s major, Duncan Campbell of Inverawe. The 42nd was a Campbell regiment. All 5 officer casualties at Fontenoy in 1745 had been Campbells. At some time in the 1740s Inverawe had been involved in concealing a fugitive. When it turned out the man had murdered his cousin, Inverawe turned him out in breach of a promise he had made. The fugitive appeared in a dream to Inverawe and said “I will see you at Ticonderoga”. By 1758 Inverawe had served in the Black Watch for some 20 years and was the major. Only on his arrival in America did he discover the existence of Ticonderoga. The fugitive appeared again to Inverawe in a dream the night before the battle the bloodstained figure predicted his death. Inverawe was severely wounded in the battle and died at Fort Edward after his arm had been amputated.

     The two battalions of this regiment operated on different theatres of operation for most of the Seven Years' War. The 1st Battalion remained in Europe while the 2nd was sent to Canada. The Colonels’ Colour remained with the 1st Battalion in Europe.
     The Colonels’ Colours were a white field with a white cross (this was the regular colonel colour carried by most French infantry regiment).

     During the Seven Years' War, the regiment ranked 72nd and was under the command of, from 1735 to 1748, Vincent Sylvestre de Thimbrune, Comte de Valence; and from January 1, 1748 to November 25 1762, Chevalier de Thimbrune de Valence.
     The regiment was disbanded on November 25 1762. Its grenadiers and officers were incorporated into the
Grenadiers de France while its sergeants, corporals, fusiliers and drummers were offered the opportunity to serve at Saint-Domingue in the colonies by joining the Boulonnais, Foix or Quercy regiments.

SENEZERGUES DE LA RODDE, ÉTIENNE-GUILLAUME DE, was an officer in the French regular army; Born 29 Aug. 1709 at Aurillac, France, son of Louis de Senezergues, governor of Aurillac; died 14 Sept. 1759.

Étienne-Guillaume de Senezergues entered his father’s old regiment, La Sarre, as a supernumerary half-pay lieutenant at the age of 14 and was commissioned an ensign on 1 Oct. 1726, a lieutenant the following year, and captain in 1734. He saw action in Italy during the War of the Polish Succession and campaigned in Germany and Italy in the War of the Austrian Succession. By 1747 he commanded the second battalion of his regiment, the titular lieutenant-colonel being unfit for active service.

When, in 1756, one battalion of the La Sarre was posted to Canada, Senezergues, now breveted lieutenant-colonel of the second battalion, was not obliged to go. His patrimony of some 10,000 livres a year made him financially independent and his family ardently desired him to remain in France. But he was an ambitious career soldier, sought advancement, and was motivated by a stern sense of duty. Thus he sailed from Brest on 3 April 1756, arriving at Quebec 13 May.

In June his battalion was ordered to Fort Frontenac (Kingston, Ont.) for garrison duty and then took part in the capture of Oswego. For his role in this campaign he was awarded a pension of 500 livres. In 1757 he distinguished himself at the siege of Fort William Henry (also called Fort George, now Lake George, N.Y.). The Chevalier de Levis, wrote that although it had not been Senezergues’s turn to march, he had volunteered to serve with the advance assault since he was the only lieutenant-colonel fit for such arduous duty. He was awarded a second pension of 500 livres after this campaign.

The following year Governor General Vaudreuil organized a force of 1,600 men, comprising colonial regular troops, Canadian militia, an élite force of French regulars, and allied Indians, for an assault on Schenectady, New York. Lévis was given the command and again Senezergues offered to accompany him as second in command, an offer that Lévis was glad to accept. No sooner had the expedition left Montreal, however, than it was recalled and sent post-haste to Lake Champlain. Word had been received that Major-General James Abercromby had massed 25,000 men for an assault on the French forts.

Lévis and Senezergues arrived at Carillon (Ticonderoga) with their relief force of 400 Canadian regulars and militia on the night of 7 July. Montcalm’s army was entrenched behind a hastily constructed barricade on the crest of the slope west of the fort. Next day the British attacked in four columns. Senezergues and his battalion on the left flank under Colonel Bourlamaque’s command came under heavy assault by two of the columns. When Bourlamaque was severely wounded Senezergues took over the command. Three assaults were beaten back with heavy losses to the British who broke and fled in disorder. In reports to the minister of War both Montcalm and Lévis singled out Senezergues for praise; they urged strongly that he be promoted to brigadier without regard for seniority. Montcalm declared that he was the senior officer most often called on for active duty, was better qualified than any of the other battalion commanders to command a corps with dignity, and the only one fit to remain in Canada to command the battalions that might stay in the colony at the end of hostilities. He was duly promoted brigadier on 10 Feb. 1759.

The same year, at the siege of Quebec, Senezergues was again in the thick of the fighting. After the departure of Lévis for the Montreal front on 9 August he became Montcalm’s second in command. On 13 September when Montcalm belatedly became aware that the British army was massed on the Plains of Abraham, Senezergues was ordered to hold the Beauport flank until the enemy’s intentions became clear, then to bring his battalion to the heights on the far side of Quebec. He and his men thus arrived on the battlefield after a forced march. With hardly a pause for breath they were ordered to charge the left of the enemy line. In that brief fateful clash Senezergues fell, mortally wounded. When the smoke of battle cleared he was taken on board a British warship. He died the next day. On receiving word of the outcome of the battle Colonel Bourlamaque wrote: “We have lost in M. de Senezergues an officer of distinction, as virtuous as he was brave; I am terribly sorry.”

The Town of Old Yangshuo, 1899

     Yangshuo is a popular tourist county and city near Guilin, Guangxi. The town is surrounded by mountains, winding rivers and beautiful scenery.
    
The Li River runs from Guilin to Yangshuo and is the centerpiece of any trip to northeastern Guangxi Province. The gorgeous Karst peaks give you surprises at each bend of the river trip. Water buffalo patrol the fields, peasants work in rice paddies, school kids and fisherman float by on bamboo rafts. With its breathtaking scenery and taste of a life far removed from the concrete metropolis, the scenery along the river has become one of China's top tourist destinations.
     Cormorant fishing is a traditional way of life on the Li River. This method of fishing has been in existence for hundreds of years. The cormorants are trained to dive into the river among the school of fish that live in the clear water. After catching a fish the birds return to the boat where the fisherman removes the fish from the bird. The bird is prevented from swallowing the fish by a ring that is placed around the neck of the bird. The bird is rewarded for its work by its owner. The birds usually fish much better at night than during the day.
