Pretty much what Stof said

Plus the fact that Kroot did manage to pull together a team for the allies which I think he should feel rightly chuffed about.

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.

As Sandy said, brilliant.
For my first event it could not have been better (well slightly cooler maybe).
Jimbo, Gordon and the guys put on a great day. Hard to pick a high point of the day as all good, but the Bangalore torpedo was great fun, once we worked out which end was which..!
I've seen it commented on this forum after other games but Marsha is lethal with that sniper rifle of hers. Lets not mention the German chaps with the MG34 and MG42.. I say it again, lets not mention them, B@#tards... I'm only jealous really..
Also a big thank you to all the usual suspects who made me feel so welcome..

As already said, a great event. Not as hot as I was expecting but certainly hot enough. Some really good firefights along with some good sneaky beaky action. My legs are like pin cushions but who cares, I enjoyed myself! Thanks again to the organisers and EAG Worthing.

Excellent day, throughly enjoyed it. Thanks to Hanschen and the rest of the guys. Some excellent scraps with the levels of gameplay and gamesmanship that makes WW2 so much better to play. Roll on the next one.

What can I say other than copy everyone else!, great day, good sportsmanship, good site, nice burger! :happydance:
Marsha caught me with a couple of cracking shots and the the two MG's on the axis side were simply formidable. What was particularly impressive was the siting of the mg's at each phase and the fact that they allowed us to be drawn into their 'kill zone' before revealing their location.
On a more novel note was Stof's grenade charge at the bunker early on in the day. Tactically sound (?) the site of him trying to ignite the grenade as he neared the bunker was brilliant!
Well done to all!

You have to be mentioned in dispatches...

Had fun taking a hit from the panzershreck, didn't hit me, but anything that cools gotta at least take one man down 8)

Big thanks to all the guys from the French 2nd armour for putting up with me :lol:

Bayoneting women and children, not my finest hour :oops: .

Cheers to all.

Thanks guys and gals for all coming. I think it has all been said Sportsmanship second to none great kit great play and the weather Gods were kind.
Big thanks to Jimbo for the site and the Burger, they are still the best burgers ever so my lads say so it must be so.
Big thanks to Graham agent orange I could not have pulled this off without him. Thanks to the Section commanders on both sides all were supberb one of the best events where you all kept together as a section.

Best bits: Marsha falling to the floor trying to cock her rifle whils a charging para with pistol approaching, and she got him
Pieper with the Panzerfaust awesome :D Trouble is I want one now :cry:
Some great charges by the allies with grenades in hand dying bravely.

But the all time favorite (ON video which I will post when I can) The French section advancing on the mined area setting off a Bouncing Betty then deciding that they needed to prod their way forward to the barricade. Shouts of encouragement "Use a bayonet" shouts in Gaelic "I have only got a stick??"

Nice to meet New members of the forum and looking forward to see many of you at the July game :good:
