|The object of our desires.|
Since I missed out on last weeks game due to approaching senility Colin Jack put on an 1956 Arab-Israeli game which was an opportunity for Colin to get a few more exotic toys out.Chief skulker Donald Adamson ventured out into the wilds to join us and to take the part of the Jordanians who had ganged up with Colin's Egyptians against my heavily picked on Israelis.This was to involve the three armies heading to take Jerusalem and protect it from the enemy.
|Sorry left my camera in the house.|
|Donald the Glum Pasha.|
|Egypt's new recruits.|
|Hunting in packs.|
|Dying in packs|
My main armour headed towards Donald's armour while my two Priests would try and hinder Colin's armour as they struck me as being the lesser of two evils-how wrong I could be.Actually I thought it unusual to have Jewish Priests but I suppose if needs must.Maybe they should have changed the vehicles name to a Rabbi.Anyway enough of the frivolity.
On my left flank my 3 Amx 10s were fighting a close battle with Donald's two M47s and it turned out to be a battle of armours as my lightly armoured tanks were turned to scrap metal and even an anti aircraft tank got in on the action and wasted one of my tanks as well as annihilating civilians in a local kibbutz.
|Rock the casbah!|
|This is how you do it Dave!|
Donald's tank arrived at the mosque so in true Israeli fashion I decided to close assault him to no avail giving Colin's Egyptians an open door into the mosque where they remained until the end of the game.
|Selling palm oil to the Arabs.|
My centurion was making piecemeal of Colon's forces destroying an Archer tank,a Russian assault gun and generally making life hard for the rest of his forces.
|This is how you do it Dave-part 2!|
|And this is how you do it Dave-part 3!|
The evening's cabaret was proceeded by a sumptuous jambalaya washed down with a glass of Devil's cellar.
