Merry Christmas, From All of the Gang

Der Alte Fritz, Mrs. Fritz and All of the Gang Wish You A Merry Christmas 2012.
The Kingdom of Hesse Seewald wishes the Merriest of Christmases and a Happy New Year to all of its readers and followers of the Der Alte Fritz Journal.

The regiments turned out smartly on the marchfeld on Christmas Day to present their standards to Der Alte Fritz. He was pleased with their appearance and was heard to comment favorably on their drill and precision. We hope to see more of His army during 2013.

  1. I trust you all had a splendid meal in the glorious dining room.Is it all right to ask if the portrait is of an ancestor perchance?
    best wishes

  2. I love the winter display. That's a superb construction and shot.

    How suitable, given the ambient weather here in the MidWest!

    Thinking of doing Princeton as one of your winter games? Fife and Drum would work admirably, with suitable modifications should one desire to winterize one's troops.
