    “Haz zer Englander began to singing like zer Canary?”

    “Nien Herr Oberst!”

    Major Shytes McCregor answered that one alright…

    “This here Sasanach’s a Scothcman laddie! They’ll nea break us Potting if they canna even tell what country we’re from, the noo!”

    Suddenly, out of the night came a loud bang and a piercing scream…

    Privates Alf Tupper and Tom Plunkett broke cover and climbed onto the roof of the nearest building, and took up covering positions, as the rest of the rescue party snuck into Fookum dodging from cover to cover. The Lance Jack on the Bren slid his finger dramatically across his throat. His mate drew his bayonet and began to stalk the enemy sentry. Hearing a palm twig snap, the alert sentry swung up his Schmeiser and riddled his assailant, sprinted up and did the same to the hapless Bren Gunner!

    Well roused now the Germans poured from their billets…

    "Wot did you do in the war Grandad?"

    "I was with Harry... At The Bridge!"

    Just makes the inevitable victory all the more dramatic!

    As the confused Germans streamed into the village square excellent shooting from the rooftop cover does for two of them…

    Unfortunately the NCO leading the Black Watch rescue party gets spotted and hit by a volley of enemy fire. Under covering bursts of Schmeiser fire he is finished off with the bayonet!

    The Germans flood into the compound which Alf and Tom are holding, neither of the two B Company stalwarts could shoot at the enemy without presenting their melons as perfect targets to the covering DAK machine gunner. Stick grenades exploded all over the roof, the final one blowing the two of them off and down into the Wadi…

    Dazed and lightly wounded the two of them snuck off down the wadi, tails firmly between legs, but still making time for a morale restoring brew of char!

    Next morning prisoners and escort formed up…

    “Now vine good Major, you vill, how do you say, go into zer bag? Varn zer man mitt zer bagpeep zat if he toots it, he vill be shot… Vorwarts Menschen!”

    Well dammit, success wasn’t guaranteed after all!  A great little fight, but blown off the rooftop, into the wadi, and they escape, eh?  When I do stuff like that people accuse me of using ‘magic dice’ 😉

    These have been very entertaining fights so far, so thanks to ya Harry, I look forward to more!

    V/R,
    Jack
