I can at times get a bit sentimental about some of the old figures I buy second hand off Ebay , I wonder who owned them what gaming history they have , where they precious and well played with or languished in a box and just sold on without thought ? . I bought these 3 figures mainly for the roadworker with the shovel who reminded me of an old chap I knew when I started work on Westmorland County Council Roads & Bridges Dept. in 1970 .The Priest will be appearing on the tabletop as Father Brown, an amateur sleuth . The middle chap I had no plans for - I think he's a Britains Zoo Keeper which somebody has painted a red sash over his shoulder .
On further investigation I found he has a sticker applied to his base with 'Mr Rignald' written on it in ink !? - I wonder who bothered to do this and what was the significance of it and why the added red sash - who was Mr Rignald ????
