The Lilliput Legion

It's lovely that "war game" is printed in inverted commas. I'm slightly uneasy about exactly what Maj Reavley was planning to do to produce his new Arab troops - sounds like Voodoo.

Clive,

I don't think i've come across this Reavley character before - should i have? Is there anything else you can tell us about him? Any idea when the article was published?
cheers.

Doug, I need to root around a bit on this, but my impression is that Charles Reavley had a long and key involvement with the BMSS wargames section and then in its later incarnation as the London Wargames Section. I have also seen BMSS references to Carl A Reavley (who was a lieutenant in 1949). I'm not sure whether these are two related or unrelated people, or maybe the same man.
