A couple of weeks after the Somme game reported here earlier I ran a cut-down version at the Sheffield club. Why cut-down? Two reasons:
1. pressure of time - I wanted it to be playable in an evening
2. I had to provide almost 100% of the kit!
Among the news items I had prepared for this game was the German battery above. An Emhar model and figures. The dog came with a toy wagon.
John entered into the spirit of things with his (plastic) helmet. Martin and new chap Tom also joined the Brits. The Jerries were led by er, Jerry.
