Many wargamers are prone to collecting fetching military hats and striking poses in them, so in honour of the late Doctor Paddy Griffith submit your pictures here please, where they will be immortalised. Become a member of the wargames glitterati 🙂
Chris Ager sneaks back onto the page disguised as Beetle Bailey. Well done Sir!
The Post ALAMEIN Victory Photo below is notable for effective deployment of Pith Helmets, Panamas and a Fez. Another retired professional hat sneaks its way onto the page – not a trend that I wish to encourage
By contrast, Major Kilgore is back on this page after a long absence. I’m not sure that your new hat counts Major, as it looks a bit too professional for this blog. The smile is nice though and the cool shades with cover worn at a jaunty angle tip the balance in your favour 🙂
The Splendidly named “General Whiskers” has joined the blog. I am advised that he owns a large collection of hats and a wig!
The measure of the fellow (for he is a re-enactor) can be gauged by the following quote from his blog:
Hah! It has taken forever to capture the Thompson Twins (Also Known as Chris Ager [L] and Graham Hockley [R]) wearing hats on camera. Perfect disguises!

Thanks go to Martyn Simpson for the excellent addition to the Soviet General Staff above (I’ve known Martyn since our respective schooldays in Scunthorpe)
Thanks to Derek Henderson for sending in some splendid examples of Hattism, which I shall hold should I ever need to blackmail him, and especially the one above!
