The Birmingham Toy Soldier Show, 2010

What a thoroughly enjoyable day today has been, thanks in no small part to the man whose picture appears below, Dave McKenna

For those of you who don't know Dave, he is passionate about toy soldiers - and no doubt many other things - and he is responsible for organising the Birmingham Toy Soldier Show. He has been doing this for the past twenty years - this year's show was number 20 - and although I've only been to two of them, including this one, I joined in heartily with the unscheduled round of applause elicited by one of the attendees as an appreciation and a 'thank you' for all that Dave has done to promote the hobby. It took Dave utterly by surprise and was thoroughly well deserved. I will certainly be attending the next one in just under a year's time

A full review of the show, together with some pictures taken by yours truly, will be posted sometime over the next day or two. Be sure to catch it, won't you?
