On Saturday 18 June I took part in a WW2 Airsoft event in Portland, Dorset (hence the en-route visit to the Tank Museum). The scenario was based on the fighting for Il Giogo Pass during the Allied assault on the Gothic Line in Italy (Wiki Link).
The game was organised by Comrades in Arms (Link) and attracted over 40 players.
My thanks for allowing me the use of their photos goes to CiA members Boshman, MartinR, BedsnHerts, Agent Orange & Seidler. This post will look at the initial setting up, with 'action' pics forming a second post.

Some of the 'Germans' getting their gear together.
The German CO with his command bus. Most impressive. He played his role particularly well - to the extent of sporting a long cigarette holder and a riding crop.
