What an enjoyable day! A great venue, great storyline, great comradeship. My lad commented on how friendly and generous a community we have - he's absolutely right. It was great to see old faces, borrow and lend kit, and new faces too - especially our friends from Denmark. :D

My overriding smile factor memory has to be using the HMG ! I've no idea if we even hit anybody (well, anybody on the Allied side! :wink: ), but it looked and sounded just great. 8)

Just a quick note to say thank you to the orginisers, players, and UCAP for putting on a brilliant game, and to Stof for helping me out with my jumbled mass of webbing! A fantastic effort for all concerned. :good:

Well, I ment to post this last night, but after getting in and having a shower first I only managed to turn my laptop on, watched the end of the Ice Hockey and that was me asleep till 6am this morning.

What a fantastic day!, Great atmosphere!, and a great site to run it in, my knees still ache from our entry in to the facility, and my ears are still ringing from the amount of grenades people lobbed at me, 3 in as many minutes!.

Many thanks to PBI for another great game, to UCAP for letting us play there, and to everybody that was there for making it a great day out, I hope everybody got home ok and hope to see you all again at the next one :good:

Hope the German player I shot "right in the kidneys" whilst defending the machine room is OK :)

lol, that's the same bloke who Boshman got from close range in the backside with the MG42, whilst we were moving it. "Oh, sorry - I accidentally pulled the trigger!" :lol:

What can I say ,many thanks to the PBI organisers for another awesome game,great to meet up with everybody again,great to meet so many new faces.
My apologies to my section if I was being a bit cautious initially,I was trying to get us through in one piece,sadly that didn't apply to me .
Tremendous scenarios and gameplay,and the initial entry really set the scene for immersion into a secret mission,outstanding job done by Nige in leading us into the facility and diverting guards.
Thanks for making it so good .

Great fun and a fantastic day. Thanks to all, especially the organisers.
Favorite moment was the look on Yith's face when they realised I had stolen the detonator for the explosives to blow the plant. :rofl:
Least favorite moment was about a second later when Yith told me they had a spare, which I hadn't bothered to steal. That's just cheating that is! :(

Fantastic day. Well done to all! Wonderful play and really atmospheric all the way through!

Favourite moments were in the pitch black of the afternoon I was returning to the messanine, calling up to Karl (Wladek) that I was coming up interuppted with the sudden feeling of a rubber knife being drawn across my throat. Whoever did that well done. I don't think I've ever been knife killed before! And some time later I managed to get my own first ever knife kill. Nice!

The other best bits were getting the RE's out of the facility, the initial route blocked, I lead a flank route and managed to find a sneaky route round the back of the germans. But boshman took me out with a BFG (probably karma for the number of BFG kill's I've had in the past). As I walked past to head to the safezone, I found there were actually 2 other germans with the MG42 on tripod in the corridor as well... But they didn't last long as a MkV landed in the corridor right next to them. Well done to the thrower of that one!

Anyway, superb event and I'm so glad I have today off work to recover!

Well it was great for me.
Thanks to all of Able Section for putting in maximum effort all through the day. I seemed to manage to get killed in most of the scenarios despite Chief Chinthe dragging me to cover whilst under fire on one occasion. A VC is in the post. The section went on to run up an impressive number of knife kills and I understand an axe kill as well.
Lots of plaudits to the garrison and civilian players who made the scenarios seem so realistic all through the day.

I threw that, but the credit goes to Pte Tierney for poking his head of the door to identify where they were!

Thanks to all who made the effort yesterday, was nice to be involved in running a game which went to plan for a change! hehe

The first mission was incredibly tense, Gadge walked half of the Garrison down an intersection within a yard of us, we had literally been there 10 seconds before, our tail gunner could only sit there motionless, luckily none of the Germans looked left as they turned right, otherwise they would have had at least half a dozen Stens and Thompsons pointed at them! hehe :shock:

Just looking at Gadges Pics i saw the MG42 on the tripod behind those barrels from where i was lay down on the mezzanine, could see the hand operating it but couldnt hit it! (just out of range) :good:

Special thanks to the Germans for being *as always* great opposition, even the new faces played really well! Well done to the Engineers for putting up with Yith's and my command! :)

Thanks to Yith for the use of the 1928, it was shooting really well! :good:

Ooo, how fantastic.

Favourite moments? Oh there are so many. The myriad of interactions with Sean have to rank there, from him trying to persuade me to leave this war behind and walk out of the front door with him to Olso, to him stumbling upon me talking to the SOE operative and a group of engineers and me having to bash him on the head with the blunt end of an axe. Top notch Sean, all the way. :good: :good: .

My thanks to Sandy for the loan of the 1911 springer, to all the fellow scientists and engineers who made constructing heavy water machinery and checking valves such fun and to Richard and Nige for getting us down there.

finally my apologies to the Germans who I clonked on the back of the head, SOE is as SOE does :giggle: :whistle: .

Can't wait for the next fun outing.

Certainly i think we perfected how to portray civilian characters on this one.

They didnt become 'soldiers in civvies' neither did they become comic relife or over stereotyped.

:whistle:
Got your mate too.

I did nothing in the first period, made silly reports to anyone who walked past and answered the telephone whilst i guarded the warehouse. Fired not one shot. It was good. Very like a real garrison posting. Then it got hotter as the day went on. More to do and more ways to get killed.
570 mile round trip that I'd do again tomorrow, no worries.

i did witness a classic comedy moment between seanybabes and wlad,,, something along the lines of,
" how can you be like this carl? "
" i just cant let the germans have all that destructive power, i cant just ignore this war, i have to do something Lars"
" but i had dinner with you and you wife last week and you mentioned nothing off this"

cue me leaving teeth marks in my MP 40 i was biting it so hard trying not to piss my self laughing and give away my position.
