Getting the ruler right in 'Flying Lead'

Mid way though our last game of Flying Lead, I started to get the impression that the super-Rhodesians; great troops as they were, were still moving faster, and shooting further than my poor ZIRPA cadres. We soon found out the reason why. Happy Wanderer was using longer measuring sticks than me.

Here is a picture of him, in his lurid yellow battle shorts, trimming his measuring sticks down to size mid-battle.


  1. The measuring stick thing I would take as a misunderstanding, but unless he got dressed in the dark, those shorts were deliberate!

  2. Jim, those battle shorts have been worn many, many times.

  3. Yeah, its the ole elastic ruler trick taken to a whole nutha level. Smite him! Cast him down!
