Gunman Airsoft and Filmsim Events proudly presents...

D-Day – Loose Canon

Battle of the bulge
Saturday £35 for the day if pre booked £45 on the gate.
Sunday £25 for 4 hrs.
£55 for the weekend.
November 7 – 8 2015
Eversley, Hampshire.

10:30 a.m. on 20 December, Eisenhower has telephoned Montgomery and ordered him to assume command of the American 1st and 9th Armies. Communications to General Bradley have not been possible and a new Commander was needed. Our story follows the 9th Army and a joint British and US force tasked with harassing a re-assembling 5th Panzer Army. The Germans have run out of fuel and are getting low on all other vital supplies to keep them in the field. The German Commander Hasso Von Manteuffel is determined to hold out for the change in fortune Hitler has promised.

Montgomery’s tactic is to turn a series of isolated actions into a coherent battle with a clear and definite plan. Can he pull it off? Only a truly loose canon could swing such a desperate situation into a winning one…the battle is on!

This is a fictional story based on historical events…l

Other Event Info.
This event is open to all US and Brit groups but as always we ask everyone to make an effort and try to look the part. Badge’in up is not needed and plain uniforms are always a win.

As well as the usual CPs in play, there will also be a list of key and secondary objectives for both sides, so be ready to be busy.

We will provide all the radio packs for the units and map cases for organising troops.

Are we allowed to carry sidearms? If so I assume the ammo comes out our ammo limit?

Yes to side arms, you can have a couple of mags for free. Any more than that needs to be included in your 300 rands;)

Thanks for that, mate, but never underestimate my ability to get lost. I drove past the Road to Rome entrance twice before figuring out where it was! :lol:

Yes it is just keep driving straight all the time whatever you do don`t turn left or Right you will then see a right hand curve which has woods on the Right and a gate on the Right it is in there. By the time you reach that point you will be able to see the safe zone

It is a fair drive down the track, a good half mile. As Gordon says, just keep going straight.
