|The north island before the onslaught|
|Buildings left over from when the Venitian's were the top dogs.|
|The initial drop|
|Beware of Greek's bearing gifts.Every one a 65mm.|
|The scattering of eagles|
|The Greeks don't want no freaks!|
|The invasion force sets sail and not an Italian in sight|
|Empty boats about to head back for more reinforcements|
Dave O'Brien was put in charge of the paras and mostly due to luck and dodgy paper dropping landed most ofhis forces safely and was quick to engage the Greek defenders which their leader(me) hadn't exactly put in the best of defensive positions and didn't take long to secure most of the northern island.
Meanwhile in the south island Bill Miller's amphibious landing was plodding along and before we stopped for a sumptuous lunch his forces were ready to swamp the landing beach.

|Here comes the good guys|

|Dave's lads about to sprint for the bridge|
The game came to an end as Dave was out gallivanting in the evening hence the reason he was charging about the island like a man possessed.On the south island a stalemate had occurred and since the Italian's were nowhere to be seen the game was brought to an end.
A good game and a chance to play it out before getting rid of some rough edges and giving it a tarting up before the WW2 re-enactment day at East Fortune next Sunday 7th May.Further details can be found on the webpage.
My thanks to Colin Jack,Dave O'brien and Bill Miller for coming along to the Gothenburg to playtest and also help with their advice and constructive criticism and also to the gorgeous girls behind the bar and the not so gorgeous chef for the welcoming bacon rolls and the delicious lunch.http://www.prestoungrange.org/gothenburg/
