Up and at 'Em!!!
« on: May 20, 2020, 08:22:43 AM »
Two days and two nights after the disastrous attempt to free their Major Privates Alf Tupper and Tom Plunkett make it back to their own lines, get a good night’s kip and are ready for dawn stand-to. Alf staggers to his feet then drops his helmet in the sand and scratches his head in total confusion. Pipe Major Potting is standing on a nearby dune playing ‘Scotland Forever’ on the bagpeeps…

“Wot the bleedin’ ‘ell’s he doing here Sarge!!!???”

“Him and the Major got picked up yesterday by an LRDG patrol, they brought a bunch of prisoners with ’em too.”

B Company Black Watch have been tasked with denying a small bridge to the enemy. As the sun rises high a suspicious looking object appears through the haze…




As the German scout car advances two Platoons of B Company move into the rocky ground on the right flank of the bridge…




Just in time as the 12th Panzer Grenadiers begin to move in support of their Recce Unit…

Indoors if wet?

The DAK recce car commander ducks his head down as he gets hit right in the eye by a flying fly, by such little things, are battles lost. By the time he’s cleared the mini missile’s remains from his mince a British armoured car has gone racing across his front without a shot being fired! A familiar figure may also be seen skulking into the ruined ancient temple thingy on the DAK scout car’s flank.


No.4 Platoon make their way into the rocky ground as No.5 head for the road…


The speed with which the DAK can move and deploy once again catches the Jocks on the hop, a mortar and heavy machine gun being deployed under the cover of the wall.


A rain of bombs and tracer bullets are very soon hitting the ranks of the plucky Scotchmen…




As the Tommy’s hit the dirt the 12th Panzer Grenadiers storm the bridge!


Recovering it’s composure the DAK recce car storms in, all guns blazing!




At the critical moment just as the bridge looks like falling a wondrous sound drifts over the desert on the wind…
To the skirl of the Peeps the rest of B Company advance from over the dunes and far away!




Two hairy arsed Heelanders are sent crazy by the sound of their Peeper, storming out and grenading the DAK scout car!!!
