We return to the action to fund that a Vulgarian cavalry regiment, accompanied by a light gun has appeared at point 4 (see map in the previous post). Predictable, they appeared behind a SHS infantry regiment!
Meanwhile on the other side of the table confusion and carnage reigns. Here, you may recall, two VG infantry regiments had appeared, followed by SHS infantry and finally a VG cavalry regiment. The problem was soon bloodily resolved and bodies (mostly SHS) littered the field.
The VG lancers who appeared at point 4 charged off towards their captured car and after a brief and rather one-sided struggle, regained possession thereof.
The VG gunners entertained themselves by firing into the SHS rear. Ooh, nasty!
Watched by Captain Widdrington the VG reserves were flung across the pontoon bridge.
The SHS commander still engrossed in his newspaper while wounded soldiers and nurses are rounded up to push his car to safety.
Captured nurses were searched carefully in case they were really Svenhasselsteiner special forces.
Taking infantry fire from the front and artillery in the rear, the SHS infantry by the bridge were under considerable pressure!
An overview of the situation. Confused? Yes, so were we....
Unable to figure out how it works, the VG lancers drag the car to safety.
Will the Vulgarian car be saved?
Will the SHS general finish the crossword?
Will Captain Widdrington fall in the river?
At least one of these questions will be answered in the next and (thankfully) final instalment!
