Infantry Regiment no 2 of Monrovia during manouvres, some new pattern uniforms have arrived for the officers and musicians, other ranks are still in the french style (figures Irregular Miniatures, with 1 Elite Miniatures Officer (on left)).
The Guard corps has been instructed to mobilise and carry out manouvres. I have instructed the army corps of each province to come into a state of readiness. The Boldovian army corps is to fully mobilise.
To provide the corps of observation for Upper Belgravia elements of the Boldovian army corps will be used, namely:
To: Field Marshall, Duke Frederick of Wittenbuffel and the General Staff
His majesty King Leopold IV requests that the army be mobilised forthwith. His majesty takes this step with the greatest regret but must do so to ensure that we are fully prepared, especially with the rising of tension in the region and the fact that other countries are also mobilizing.
His majesty specifically asks that a corps of observation be setup in the province of Upper Belgravia to watch the border with Monrovia and to help the local administration deal with with a rise in brigandage and highway robbery.
His majesty also directs that the army corps of the province of Boldovia be moblised first and the guard corps in Wittenberg to be brought into readiness.

A blog documenting the encounters between the armies of the imaginary nations of the Kingdom of Wittenberg and its neighbours (including the Kingdom of Monrovia and their allies). My inspiration being drawn from 'Charge or How to Play Wargames' by Young & Lawford and 'The Wargame' by Charles Grant.
I have a number of other period interests for wargaming (from ancients to WW2), these have their own blogs, see below.
