Gerard de Gre

Bob Cordery recently raised the question of the identity of the wargamer shown below on his Wargaming Miscellany blog. Bob's interest was originally raised by the use of squared terrain.

Below is the original newspaper clipping used by Don Featherstone in Wargamer's Newsletter 85 in April 1969. From the notices of Women's Institutes and weddings on the reverse, it is clear this is from an Ontario newspaper.

Two further pictures show items from Professor de Gre's collections, taken from Wargamer's Newsletters 93 and 99, and the third is a scan of a typed carbon list of Alymer 20mm General Staff figure groups from Spain. These figures were "small" 20mm (ho/oo) and hand painted. Further information is available under "others" on Vintage 20mil.
