It had to happen sooner or later: The Really Useful Box Bug has bitten. My much-loved box files are showing their age, mostly because their contents are forever changing ahead of any attempts to label them. The new transparent A4 boxes are easier to see into without opening as my Soviet and German generals regroup their forces. My Billy Boxes are still in use, so here are a couple – boxes one and thirteen as it happens.
Box 001 contains an Italian Western Desert Metropolitan Infantry Division, with some Army level reconnaissance . Note the rather grand overscale staff car in the top right corner of the box. Italian generals have style! The divisional artillery is far less impressive by comparison.
