Eighty years on. 25th November 1939


In Britain, after attempts to protect wild-roaming New Forest ponies from traffic accidents in the blackout by painting them as zebras, they were rounded up and moved to safe pastures.

These are New Forest ponies
and these are Zebras. Spot the difference (or should that be stripe?)

Game day 86. Japan

The Japanese made a determined assault to take Peking from the Chinese.  1st Armoured Corps attacked from the north, while a battalion from 3rd Infantry Corps attacked from the south.  The attack was supported by 2nd Fighter Group flying in from the east.

The Chinese 2nd Infantry Corps was wiped out and the 4th Infantry Corps lost one battalion.  On the Chinese side 1st Armoured Corps lost half its tanks and the 4th Infantry Corps was eliminated.  No aircraft were shot down.  The Chinese held the city.
