Following on our ongoing campaign mixing historical with hysterical matters Victorian our recent game saw a German massed assault on a smaller British force holding a ridge and wood line with a smaller detachment of Guards and Rifles in a forward position defending a walled farm - sound familiar?????

Image

A quiet English countryside sees 2 suspicious characters with incredibly dodgy fake beards asking the locals for directions in what they assume to be a Welsh accent - they b'aint from round eres lads"

Image

Trench lines dig it at the bottom of the hill

Image

And steam vehicles stand ready to advance

Image

1st Army Corps lads from Aldershot are resplendent in their 1890 Experimental white home service helmets and anchor one flank

Image

And the Household Cavalry mass in the reserve

Image

Along with a mobile infantry reserve

Image

And Brunel Battery, RSA (Royal Steam Artillery)

Image

And a morale booster good old John Bull plays patriotic tunes on his organ!

Image

The Prussian command considers its options

Image

Image

And launch massed infantry assaults across the front

Image

Whilst the Brits have more pressing concerns - "do you know what it is like to make soup for 1000 men in this heat sir?"

Image

With Uhlans and infernal machines

Image

Siege guns and robots too - the filthy Huns!

Image

Not like our own splendid Mechanised Dragoons

Image

Image

Advancing across a broad front

Image

But easy prey for our gunners

Image

Even the Navy stands to - with Stoker Smiggins left in charge of the grog!

Image

And my god they occupy the farm but are thrown out again by a bayonet charge across the yard - the Guards and Rifles paying dearly for the place of glory

Image

And Jerry's signallers call the retreat

Image

In recognition of their sacrifice and the pivotal role played by Lt Bromhead's section of good bayonet men plugging the gap, a VC, a memorial statue and photos for the London papers - BRITISH VICTORY OVER THE HUN - read all about it - enjoy - atb Tim
