Wednesday night, my secret wargaming friend put on a WW1 game with his brand new shiny Naval Brigade making their debut.
I was officer commanding the naval brigade, and had a two section landing party, supported by some Scots.
The British senior commander was played by another secret wargaming friend and he was in command of elements of the BEF.
We were tasked with blowing a bridge to prevent the Hun advancing, and rescuing two downed RFC pilots.
Sooner than expected, the pilots were found, hiding not far from the British start position. The colonel's plan paying dividends at an early stage. It wasn't long before Coward and Faversham were back at the squadron.
The mere presence of 'the Senior Service' seemed to raise the moral of the army.
In the end, the Ulhans were driven off, after receiving significant casualties, and the bridge was nearly ready to blow. SWF declaring a British victory.
A sound plan by the Colonel paying off.
A good night, with great figures and terrain.....
