Brits at Aachen

Postby Allenby » Mon Feb 16, 2015 11:44 pm

Right chaps, who's bringing what?

I hear we might have an Aussie tagging along with an Owen gun, not to mention some blaggard who's cadged himself a Grease Gun, but aside from that, are we breaking the Sten Guns out or will we have a few Lee Enfield's?

I'll also need a plucky second in command to ensure the attack succeeds when I valiantly and selflessly retire 25 miles to the rear to chat with Corps (situated at the Pink Pussycat Club...)

TTFN.

Sadly the Aussie has been attached to the Yanks. It was apparently considered favourable to have someone able to tell apart the confusingly similar Brodie helmets and their German counterparts. Hopefully this measure will cut down on the usual friendly fire incidents :giggle:
The presence of even such a small Australian contingent does however mean that the Pink Pussycat Club has had to close due to an unfortunate beer shortage :rofl:

I expect my trusty Sten will be making an appearance, looks like neither my Enfield or Mortar will be finished for this in time as I have to put client projects first...

Happy to be 2i/c if you need one!
