Last Flight from Singapore

I really enjoyed reading Tally Ho! Yankee in a Spitfire, which is excellent by the way, so have tracked down the author's second book Last Flight from Singapore. I'm hoping that it will be just as interesting and may even give some ideas for more Bag the Hun 2 scenarios. I haven't written any of these for a long time, so I really should have another stab at submitting one or two for the Toofatlardies Summer Special later in the year. 

I'm not sure how popular the rules are now, as they've been eclipsed by more recent rules like Chain of Command in terms of uptake. However, I still think they're one of the best rule systems that the TFL team has produced, with plenty of scope for 'playing the period not the rules'. This makes them ideal for historical scenarios based on solid research, which is what I really enjoy doing, with some good (and some not so good) results.


  1. Really must play BTH, (mainly for Bag the Mig) but it looked like it dealt with less aircraft per game than I initially wanted. Had some good games of Thud Ridge I ran at the club (admittedly much simpler) though, with about 40 odd aircraft and some SAMs.

  2. I've always meant to have a go at MiG Alley myself...interesting set of rules!
