Is there any chance of getting hold of the pictures taken by the GF guys at all?

I think they said they'd be putting a link to them up on their ascock page.

With a bit of surfing I've found them here:

I suspect they could be moved as I think they may have supposed to have been put in the wwii day folder.

Yay! My "I kill you!" moment got captured on camera!

It appears that once again I have just about succeeded in avoiding showing my face in any photograph! There is one- but that is slightly out of focus. :slap: :lol:

Witness the 'dead' partisan (me) with a broad grin on my face as Heide dicks around like a pro drunk. Very funny.

I so need to get to one of your games, that looks unbelievably brilliant. You sure do lay it on thick don't you? :wink:

So, is the 'death dive' a replacement to hand up and call hit then? Or were you all just posing for the cameras? :D

The "death dive" was indeed a replacement for shouting hit and putting your hand up.

Some bloody awesome pics :good: I just had to make a little animation of this sequence of pic's, its like a little chapter of Commando comic. :rofl:

"A partisan distracts the sentry whist the British commandos sneek closer... too late, the sentry spots the Tommies... galantly he attempts to fight back, but the commandos are on him like a flash and he is mercilessly bayoneted to the ground. Quickly regrouping, the squad move onto their objective, leaving Jerry to rot!" :lol:

That's great!! They look posed!! How I wish I could have bayoneted someone!! I did manage to knife Lipton to death as he tried to medic Keith though.

It really was a wonderful moment.

What you don't see is the set up. 2 section moved up along the river. I crept up to look at the sentry box with my binos. I saw the partisan (actually SOE operative) walk past towards the sentry box. I didn't know if he was going to give us away or not.

As he got closer to the box I could see he was distracting the sentry, intentionally or not it was a good time to attack. So I signalled back to the section that they should go right away. They moved immediately and the rest you can see. Superb play by all. I especially love John's bayonet kill, I hadn't noticed him do that!

The German sentry did get off the alarm before he was shot so we had to move quick to the signals vehicle before the SS moved in to reinforce it.
