Camp Cromwell 22/06/06

Continuation of Tunisia double campaign battle.

Nick, Barrie (short time), Peter & Mark v. SteveJ & SteveP. Jim & Leigh umpiring.

In the pass the Brats were held at bay by the FJ's reaguard. They weren't game to advance in the face of dug in HMGs & 88s.
On the main front, the US tried to assault the Pioneers on the ridge but failed & fell back.
The last MkIII fell to the M10's and another MkIV* was over-run by GIs after being bailed by a bazooka.
The Panzer Coy failed coy morale when it lost the last armoured car (having lost HQ) and became pinned.
The battle continued untill nightfall with artillery bombardments & long range sniping which the Ities got the worst of.

Total Casualties for the day's fighting (2 nights):
The Allies did best in casualties, though the Axis managed to hold their LoS so it could have been a lot worse for them.
