Well done to both sides today. The allies though outnumbered fought like tigers. They took the german hq twice! Everyone played in good spirit and it was very honourable all round. Pity the weather came down at the end.
Happy xmas to you all.

Cracking day Tony, was great fun and probably the best gameplay I can remember in 13 years of ww2 airsoft, great to see the T25 there and was enjoyable driving the weasel and using my bazooka.
Best day I have had in a while. Thanks to all who organised and played

The bazooka - probably most impressive death I’ve received for quite some time when you blasted our machine gun position. I think someone took some pics of our dead smouldering corpses when you guys eventually walked up on us!

Great fun today. Thanks Seg for all the organising, and lending me a spare rifle when my mp40 mags failed, and a special thanks to Lutz for giving George and I a lift to the station when we weren’t able to call our taxi.

Thanks Tony , another cracking day , even the weather was kinder than the forecast , it only really rained in the last hour .The vehicles were great, even when you could not see the vehicles you could hear them moving around , that gas MG on the armoured jeep was so cool ( shame it scared the gentry) . My only gripe was the traffic on the way home , that really sucked !
Thanks again for a great day .

An amazing day, had a good laugh throughout the day with everyone (except when trying to take that damn farmhouse) but the Germans did get our revenge in the bunkers, looking forward to seeing you all again at future games

What a very good event.

We had great fun and it was great to catch up with some old faces

Despite a brake failure and resulting crash in to a roundabout on the way to site, (we budged the brake system after and ran on one wheel with a working brake)

We then had to drive home to Manchester at 40mph with a bent axle or hub ((not had chance to check) and one brake with Matt hand cranking the wipers the whole way as water coming in shorted the wiper motor.

8 hours of hell to get home
But it was still worth it

Great event, great people ....
mucho fun

You two are complete nutjobs! But it was great to see you tearing around in that battlewagon all afternoon.

Big thanks to Seg, lovely bloke and a great game. :)

Took me a few days to find my iPad!
Great game, even though I only lasted the morning, thought the noisy transport was a great effect and was impressed with the " bombing runs" from the jeep!
Looking forward to the next one........hopefully in the SUMMER!

You have to copy and paste it to your profile. It’s titled “ campaign medal “ in the chat page....

did these photos surface? Would love to see them, we had a great ( if not expensive) day with the bazooka and all the Getman players were excellent and good fun . Hats of to you all
