D-day at Rich's

Rich's British Rifles (1750 pts)
Jim's Grenadiers (1000 pts)

Maybe inspired by the magnificent Kingston Beach, Rich wanted to try out his own Sandy Bay Beach.  It might be a  very poor thing by comparison, but it still gave us a good little battle.  As usual with this mission the Brits were held up on the beach for a good while, but once they got over the wall in strength the German front line disintigrated quickly.  The first objective was taken, but the front line troops, with the help of the heavy artillery from reserve, had destroyed all the armour and had bought time for the reserve grenadiers to dig in on the 2nd objective. So it was minor German victory.
