Well, we have finally got around to the next chapter in The Compleat Fondler, chapter 12 where Richard Fondler and his British troops are trying to stop a French force from capturing Major O'Stereotype whilst he is spying on the French army in the valley below.
Here's the Major looking down from a tower in the hill top village
A bird's eye view of the terrain the French have to climb
The four British characters or "Big Men"
A group of Rifles watch their Chosen Man take a pot shot at a French officer
Missed ! but not by much.
As the column proceeds, a group is detached to head across the fields
French troops exchange fire with the Rifles at long range
Second time lucky for the marksman, he's hit the French officer but its only a light wound
British on the hill side reveal themselves by opening fire
Two groups of Rifles open fire on the French column
as one group of French making a dash ahead
The French pressure increases as they drive the Rifles back from the walls at the base of the hill
O'Stereotype rings the bell to announce he is ready for the full retreat
following O'Stereotype's signal, the Rifles effect their escape up the hill side
A victory of sorts for the British ... but the main character of the series has been chopped - a bit like Game of Thrones then !
Guess another heroic leader will have to emerge for the next episode ...
