International Naval Wargames Day 06 August 2017

It's been a while since I posted about wargaming; I haven't been doing much of it lately. But today is the first International Naval Wargames Day and I thought I'd mention it.

It's put on this date because it's the birthday of Fred T. Jane, probably best known for Jane's Fighting Ships, which has become the standard unclassified reference to warships… and which had its genesis as a stats supplement to The Naval War Game, which he'd also written. (Turning one's hobby into a job… well, as long as one still enjoys it.)

I won't be doing anything about it today because I am currently away on holiday, but when I get back I plan to start some more play-by-email Harpoon.
