Sun 9th August
Last Wednesday we ventured back into early WW2 which involved an attack on the island of Inchcolm in the river Forth just off Edinburgh.
Much poetic license was used in this game as there was no way you could land paratroopers on Inchcolm especially early war German paras and I don't think German seaborne units would get that far up the river.
The Germans paras landed without any problems(Aye right)and immediately attacked a bunkhouse and done away with the sleeping Poles inside-very unsporting.
Daylight duly arrived and the Poles were still hanging on waiting for reinforcements.A Hurricane arrived and wiped out the German observer team which meant no support for the Germans but they weren't needed.
Polish garrison-Bart Zynda
Allied reinforcements-Bill Gilchrist.
German paratroopers-Donald Adamson-who had to leave early to pick the dog up and walk the wife-or maybe it was the other way round?Hugh Wilson took over as his 2nd in command.
German infantry-Mr Ray Neal & Isaac Neal-a father and son double act.
Figures and scenario-Colin Jack
And of course a mention for Lady Suzanne who once again surpassed herself with her haute cuisine.
See you when I see you.
