Operation Tonga- 18TH MAY 2019- COMBAT SOUTH Mayles Ln
Fareham PO17 5ND, UK

GAME SETTING
Normandy 6th June 1944 0100hrs the 3rd Parachute Brigade
All of its constituent units were scattered throughout the area due to poor navigation, heavy cloud cover, and several of the drop-zones either not being marked correctly or marked correctly but incorrectly positioned due to pathfinder error. The 8th Parachute Battalion, tasked with destroying two bridges near Bures and a third by Troarn, was widely scattered with a number of its paratroopers landing in the operational area of 5th Parachute Brigade. When the commanding officer, Alastair Pearson, arrived at the battalion rendezvous point at 01:20, he found only thirty paratroopers and a small group of sappers. Pearson therefore decided to send a small force to demolish the bridges at Bures, and lead the rest of the battalion to a crossroad north of Troarn where it would await more reinforcements before it attacked. A reconnaissance party, and a party of sappers, was sent into Trojan to ascertain the status of the bridge. These troops came under fire, from a German-occupied house near the bridge.
