Apologies for the delay in getting this out: no excuse bar far too much on and being *completely* shattered on Saturday. I am working on dumping at least one musical commitment sooner rather than later :D

This WILL NOT be the continuation of the San Matteo battle. Instead, you're off to the west, with B Company of the Herewards up against 5 Kompanie of the 741st.

Gary - if your companies from the other Sunday are still labelled and you feel like bringing them that would be wonderful :D

I'm not going to force you, but I think it might perhaps be fun if different people were the COs for this scenario.

I'm aiming to get in around 6:30 to set up.

(catching up)

A winning draw for the Germans. The British have a somewhat shaky hold on the grassy knoll on the western edge of the valley, which doesn't really compensate for the loss of a Firefly and 12 Platoon's CO.

Scenario 5 will be an hour or two later, with the British second attempt to take the valley.

(I'll write up both this and scenario 4 (yesterdays) this week).
