Operation Chariot – The Raid on St. Nazaire
An AGS event at UCAP “The Sandpit”

Date:
Saturday 14th July 2012

Venue:
Swanscombe Park Quarry
Roman Road
Dartford
DA2 8AH

Price:
£45

Scenario:
March 28th 1942. 01:34

HMS Campbeltown rams the southern gates of the Normandie dry dock. The soldiers of the German garrison scramble from their berths and rush to battle stations. Meanwhile, the men of No. 2 Commando and the Special Service Brigade form up into their assigned teams to locate their objectives. Following them are the demolitions teams- engineers heavily laden with explosives and armed only with pistols. They must rely on their assigned protection teams as they work on setting charges to destroy key infrastructure.

As the alarm sirens wail and the night sky is pierced by tracer and searchlight, the 22 Naval Flak Brigade, the Harbour Defence Companies and Wehrmacht troops of the nearby 333rd Infanterie Division are ordered to neutralize this group of British insurgents who now have no way home.

In line with previous AGS events each side will be tasked with primary and secondary objectives, some of which will only be revealed on the day. Unlike the set-piece battles of our previous games, Operation Chariot will leave most of the tactical decisions to squad leaders. Player NCOs will need to be innovative and their squads must be aggressive and resilient.

As usual, we insist that you operate within your designated squads and follow orders. There is no place for freestylers or lone wolves.

Booking details and uniform requirements will be posted soon.

Hurrah to AGS for filling the July void left by the sad demise of Foxley.

Especially welcome as I can't make Corridor or Le Chateau and thought I was waiting until August which seems a long way off right now.

I'm assuming it's going to be like the old films where it is ostensibly night and pitch black but clearly actually the middle of the day!

I have a small skewer hidden in the collar of my jumping jacket, and a razorblade in my gaiter, as well as my knife.

Everyone will be issued with special day-for-night contact lenses.

John has the most disorganised sig on the forum, but I kind of admire his free thinking chaotic artistic style :rofl:

:shock: I think you will find it counterpoints the surealism of the underlying metaphor!

Does anyone have the code for Op Chariot banner?

now you can see why my signature is so messy, i just cant get the hang of shuffling this stuff around! just right click on the banner and save it, then upload it to photobucket or something similar and move it over from there.

The certainly looks good, Me and Kroot have been chatting about it. Both of us have been putting together a British tommy set of gear each over the last year and this might be just ripe to christen it (especially as it is relatively easy reach by public transport from us).

I take it there should be no problem with a greener battledress (mines a post war continental copies, I think French jacket and Danish trousers).

To the tune of "Mademoiselle from Armentières"

Napoleons army ran away, As you do
The guard stood firm for Frances Pride, As you do
They said the guard will stand and die
But we heard what their Colonel cried
It wasn't pretty I tell you.


Resistance is fertile

No problem at all,given that there was a huge difference in the colours produced I doubt if anyone will even notice. :good:

I can't seem to find this answer and I'm sorry if I'm blind, but:

What time do we get there and when does it all finish?

Usual start time is be there 9 briefing 9.30 then straight out finish about 5pm
That should give you the general scenario.
