Chapter 1, Part One: The Adventure Begins

"Well, Captain Hardy I hope your 'Photographs' will inform London of the Chancellor's intentions." 
"I am just about finished developing the plates, come here and look."
"Is that our friend (Prussian) General Von Klink with the right flank?" [Top Photo]

"Look, there he is again with that Lancer Regiment and that is not in his Brigade"

"Yes, and he is giving orders to that Brigade Commander."

"Yes, Major we were correct, the Chancellor is planning to send him to Mafrica with his Regiment.  I wonder if we might, shall we say descend upon the Chancellor, and determine what they have in mind?"
"We cannot be too far from there, the entire general staff of the Mafrica Division moved as one on the field."
"Yes, away from the main general staff and is that not interesting."
"Oh, Hardy we almost missed this, this squadron here [Bottom Photo] is vastly unstrength, I wonder if some of it's members have not already been deployed to Dakkla?"
"I wonder if the Danes should know about this."
"Well they know by now that the Berlin Congress [1873] has acquiesed to Bismarck's demands that Prussia take over the Danish concession, except for Kaffia.  I believe that the Danes and French are in for some nasty Prussian surprises".
"Captain Hardy, these chemicals you are using really smell awful."  Well then Major Burton it is a good thing that we rented this cabin for the month."
