The VERY best photos of the Chunuk Bair diorama

Whilst I’ve previously posted quite a few photos on the official blog of the diorama of the WW1 battle of Chunuk Bair, we’ve saved the *very* best shots until last!

We had agreed to withhold these photos until after ‘Wargames Illustrated’ published a photo-article about this project. Now that this article is in their August issue, we can at last show you these amazing shots taken by Andy Palmer.

Here’s a few sample pics (click each picture for the full effect).  But do go to the Mustering The Troops blog to see more photos and to read the informative captions:

  1. Thanks for that, Michael. Andy has certainly taken some amazing shots considering the rather awkward lighting conditions at the time.

  2. Thanks for the photo arteis – My wife ,son and I visited Wellington to visit Sir Peter’s diorama plus Te Papa . Wish we could have spent more time at the diorama -it really needs at least a week of viewing and a good camera .
    We only had little cameras .
    Whilst visiting the little museum behind the diorama – my son Mike was giving a commentary to some of the guests there … A senior staffer from the museum heard him and asked if he was employed at the museum – my son replied no -but that he had just finished a BA in History and had covered WW1 in full . The staffer suggested that Mike apply for a job there .
    Its up to him -but I am not sure that Wellington’s weather in winter is to Mike’s liking .
    Keep up the good work – arteis.
