This was a made up battle simulating, very loosely, an escape to Dunkirk by Allied forces. The Brits had an infantry Division of 9 btns, an armoured Brigade of 2 tank btns and an Armoured car regiment, along with a French infantry Brigade. Also present was the Brit Divisional artillery of 6 Regts
The Germans had a Panzer Division and most components of a Motorised Division. The Germans had no supporting field artillery but did have "random" Luftwaffe support and a Fallschirmjager btn that could be air transported in to an airfield behind Allied lines at any time the German wished.
A view of the double river, the bridges and the escape road. Towards the top of the pic is the airfield. Although the battle was "made up", it did still create the flavour of the time and reflected the abilities of the forces involved. Out of the 5 Allied Brigade equivalents deployed, we reckoned that 3 should make the escape road. A fun change as we had not done WWII for a fair while. More WWII next year.
