Components should also include the graveyard (pretty much vital for the scenario) and the manor house (which currently needs repairing, or more likely replacing)

Manor House is 'Godfrey's Cottage' which I have here if we don't use the club building.

This has definitely been to partizan. First show game we ever saw. Was at kelham hall. I would guess 2013.

Salute 2014 was its first appearance. Partizan 2014 I think. There's been a few others as well, it did the rounds that year.

Work Needed:

The graveyard needs (somehow) de-warping - done
The boards need a touch up and maybe a re-grassing - done.
The Home Guard could do with a retouch on their paint, and varnishing - not done yet

Things to consider:

Maybe change the scenario a bit just for variety?
