An Announcement…



The bells of all of Syldavia are ringing out in joyous proclamation of the birth of a child, Mattias Eduard (name rendered in Syldavian of course), Prince of Syldavia.  The Prince and Queen Sofia are doing well, as is Princess Lilia Anna.  The King is reported to be holding up...   The Prince has already started his military career having been named honorary Colonel of the St. Vladimir Jaegers, although it will be some while before he is fitted for a uniform... 


Happy and heady days here, though we are treading water during the sleepless days following  the birth of a baby.  How easily one forgets all of that.  Not too much wargaming going on!
