Might be worth checking with the other organisers before you put on too many dates, it's better than treading on toes!

Don't worry I've been told off once so I won't be doing it again!

Had fun, but I'm a f*cking wreck and pain killers can only get you so far. Morning was great, but by afternoon the combination of heat and not being able to move my arm properly had taken its toll. To be fair I think a lot of us were on our ass at the end.

Good to meet new faces and get shot to sh*t by a lot of old ones. ;)


I like to make sure you got your money's worth!

As for the outflanking incident if you referring to one near the bunkers then It was actually just a bit of momentary confusion that I'll take responsibility for, i saw a building on the flank and not being sure whether it was occupied or not got my guys to F&M towards only to discover when we got there that it was the fort we'd cleared way before. Sorry if caused anyone any aggro.

hay it was no problem i just wanted to make sure i'd caused no offence or seemed like a winger .

Don't worry about it, was a bit confused at first then I realised what you meant when you were calling across to us, that's why we backed off. All honest mistakes really. Any way. Good game and a fantastic defense by the german team, especially in the village.

Thanks to all who turned up. Cheers for a great knackering day FUBAR, had a great time firing the Artillery piece you made, the jap leg mortar attack on village awesome, ears still ringing(cheers jerryatrick lol). Thanks to the lads for bringing the Flak gun, all these goodies made for a banging day at combat south. Oh and the Docs medical battlefield tent display, gruesome.
:good:

the high point of the day for me was probably the last action defending the bridges , where Lutz ,Gordon and myself supported the lad's of the Flack 38 crew ,throwing back wave after wave of determined Allied attack ,we were eventually driven back but launched a counter attack to re capture the Flack but alas it was too late as a tidal wave of Allied forces was across the bridges and our effort's made only a small reprieve and the steam roller of the Allied advance ground down our last resistance , i lived just long enough to be cut down by the Flack that was once again in Allied hand's .
It was personally satisfying as one bridge was held by our Flack team while the other was held by my Zib (bren) .
Hat's off to my German team mates in our staunch defense ,we were driven back but we seemed to do it on our own terms in an ordered withdrawal ,the only time we utterly collapsed was in the last action.The allied advance was relentless with my particular respect to the British as it allway's seemed to be a red beret or battle bowler who shot me but when it came to the Grenades they seemed to rain down on use if the American forces came in throwing distance ,there nothing like being blow'n up !

Dadio I did say I love killing the axis with plenty of pyro. :good: lol
I'm not complaining or trying to out do anybody but just on the village attack my gun went down so I just used my blank firing pistol & 13 mk5 Thunderflashes
17 Smoke granads &
21 pea granads but who gives a s**t anyway not me.
On that note I would like to say well done to the gerry in the two storey building that threw himself over the side when I filled it with pyro what a good bit of acting (if there was any medals to be given out I would have voted for you.) :happyclap: :happydance: :happyswing:
Cheers
Pete.
P.s. At least our gameplay on saturday was better than the English football teams on the thursday!! Lol :ghey:

Morey did a fantastic job of leading the 2nd British (and commonwealth) squad. He had us doing fire and support maneuvers so effectively that Killacommy was moaning that when we were on the bunkers he still hadn't been shot once.
I'm sure Killacommy would appreciate it if on his next game axis players could try and make up for this oversight. :rofl:

Well I had a cracking time, particularly enjoyed the fight around the village, the two-storey fort, and a little scrap a fragment of our 82nd team got into with some of the FJ boys in the woods, clearing all those bunkers - always trying to get around each-others' flanks, was great fun to see some nice fluid fire and manoeuvre fighting rather than being in fixed positions.

Also I'd like to echo Pete's particular "well done" to the German who got blown up in the tower, I was clapping while hunkered down behind my tree when I saw that. :)

Blimey, glad my amateur dramatics went down well, would've been ungentlemanly to hide from a well placed nade so I thought I might as well make a show of it :wink: all good fun, innit? :good:
I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.

Now that I have returned to the land of the living, I thought I'd just say what an excellent time I had yesterday. It was great to meet loads of new faces, Lutz, Allenby, BootedFeet, Russe11, Morey and ablindedsoldier to name a few. I'd also like to say thanks to Greg for organising the day, I had loads of fun and really enjoyed myself. Great gameplay from both sides, personally I put down the fact that I went for as long as I did without being hit down to my "you go first, I'll be right behind you" attitude :lol: , rather than the enemies shooting skill.

So to sum it all up; great day, great site, great crowd and a well structured game. :good:

Forgot to ask the Allies did using the mines work in the game play?

Yes it helped to slow us down.
As you know if the games to fast it will end up like an open day.
Plus with the bridges mined it made us work harder to succeed in the final battle.
Maybe the next game could be something on the lines of the Battle of the bulge just to give Gerry a break from running all the time (that is away from us).
This would stop them getting stroppy about being on the receiving end all the time & the chance for a bit of payback from the last how meny games?
Cheers
Pete
