About this creation
Located on the outskirts of the desert town of Al Sabar, Fort Abu Klea is the home to A Company, 1st Battalion, The Royal Tabnerian Rifles. The Fort is named in honour of the Battle of Abu Klea, a few years previously when a British Column was attempting to relieve Khartoum in the Sudanese campaign.
A Coy is based here to protect the caravan routes as well as the town, from the dastardly Yankees, who raid from time to time. Additional units may be garrisoned at the fort when necessary.
A Coy is under the command of Captain Williams, and includes a mounted platoon for longer range patrolling.
This model was displayed at Legoland Windsor in May of 2008 as part of the Brickish Association Display in support of the Lego Club Weekend. The wals are of modular construction for ease of transport, and the buildings all come off the baseplates similarly. This model was built for, and demolished soon after, the event.
